"At first I never did homework. I hated it and didn't care. But then I realized I could do it! An then I realized if I did it - I could actually get better grades. Books & Breakfast made a big difference for me." Hector, a student
For The Students
As study habits develop, self-worth and confidence grow, those qualities translate to the classroom and teachers often will notice a class environment with students closer to the same level in their academics, with less disruptions overall, and happier students eager to learn.
Books & Breakfast connects resources to schools and helps students develop their own self-awareness, with skills and habits that translate across classrooms, communities, families and shapes futures.
"B&B has been a rewarding experience. The program has allowed me to influence kids so they feel empowered to learn, ask questions and to be the best they can be." Jason McKinney, a Volunteer Tutor
For The Community
Books & Breakfast builds connections within the local school community and draws additional Evanston resources to the local school. Connections are built through: Partnerships with Teaching Staff, Parent Engagement, Working with the PTA and Leveraging External Resources.
These strategies build our school community's capacity to support our students.
