SEO Scholars Partner Spotlight

SEO Scholars San Francisco is honored to have The Republic of Tea as one of its first corporate partners, providing a four-year gift to support a Scholar through the high school years of the program. Founded in 1992, The Republic of Tea focuses on constantly enriching people’s lives through the experience of premium teas, education and innovation. The Republic of Tea has taken a very hands-on approach to supporting our Scholars, inviting them to tour their offices and working alongside them in the garden of Homeward Bound in Marin, a program designed to help the homeless feed the hungry. We are thrilled to have The Republic of Tea as a founding supporter of SEO Scholars San Francisco and look forward to another fun event this summer.
