Our Breakfast with a Legend program teaches young people about rules and laws and the importance of community involvement through a series of lessons and classroom visits.
For the Closing the Gap initiative, we recruited volunteers who lived during the African American Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 60s to serve as Legends and to share their life’s experiences over breakfast. College students, law students, and members of the community also participated.
Thank you to the following participating schools, volunteers, and Legends for making this program a success:
- School: Tech Boston Academy
