Truth in Recruitment (TIR) is a student advocacy group under the auspices of the Santa Barbara Friends (Quaker) Meeting, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our goal is to work with students, families, teachers, veterans, community organizations, and school districts to clarify the consequences of military careers, provide alternative options for students’ academic and professional success, to inform families of their children’s privacy rights, and to advocate for policies regulating recruiter presence on campuses.

Truth in Recruitment has been selected for SB Gives!, a year-end fundraising program, sponsored by The Fund for Santa Barbara and The Santa Barbara Independent, to create a network of donors for nonprofits serving Santa Barbara County. Your contribution supports our team and their commitment to facilitating community leadership and advocacy in our school communities.
You can donate online…/santa-barbara-friends-meeting/.
Please note: your tax deductible contribution by December 31 will help us secure additional funds through SB Gives! matching grants.

If you are a student or family member, please take a look at our page Life After High School for information on ways to make a difference in your community and set yourself up for an enriching career. Also, take a look at our many resources to learn about your family’s privacy rights, and how to opt out of having your child’s information released to recruiters.

You can join our movement by sharing our message and resources with your community, volunteering for community service, joining our mailing list, or making a tax-deductible donation here.

Schools are for the education of students!
