Traveling Education Booth
The Keep A Breast Traveling Education Booth (TEB) is KAB’s touring, interactive education platform. It is a grassroots teaching tool that brings our message of breast cancer awareness and prevention directly to young people at the events they attend. The TEB is constantly on the road. It is an influential presence on the Vans Warped Tour, SXSW, and at action sports events and gatherings worldwide.
In 2011 alone, the TEB was on the road for 476 events, at which KAB educated a combined total of over two and a half million people about breast cancer, breast cancer prevention, and early detection.
The TEB encourages young people to participate and learn in environments where they are already comfortable. It contains KAB reference materials such as our step-by-step Check Your Self! breast self-exam card, NTR Prevention Pocket Guide, and NTR Mini Zine. The TEB also has hands-on teaching tools such as the Breastology Bag, which contains breast shaped pillows that allow users to feel the difference between cancerous and non-cancerous lumps.
TEB visitors can share personal experiences through KAB’s support programs, including This is My Story and Imagine If…. Of course, KAB representatives are available at every TEB to answer questions and provide resources.
How does it support the KAB Mission?
The TEB brings breast cancer education to young people on their own turf. It is an accessible “first step” to awareness and support. It is key to KAB’s appeal to our target demographic. Through the TEB, we can encourage young people to be their own breast cancer advocates.
Can I participate?
Any visitor to an event hosting the TEB is encouraged to experience this program. Chances are, if there is a major music festival, action sports, or arts event happening near you, KAB’s Travelling Education Booth will be there.

Congrats to Jacqui Sandell for landing a spot on Team Blake on NBC’s The Voice! Jacqui, a supporter of KAB, donated her time to us by playing several acoustic sets on Warped Tour during Girls Garage with her alt/rock band, My Arcadia.
