Program 1

Project Mister ProgramIndividual Breakfast Group members meet weekly with Project Mister youth for dialog and direction. This provides an opportunity for members to interact with the youth in an exchange of experiences, advice on career planning and numerous other topics which are initiated by the youth. education and career planning along with employment opportunities and preparation for employment are always key topics in the sessions. The sessions are conducted at two alternative high schools in Seattle WA with 20-30 students in each class each with an instructor.Community Necktie ProjectThe project is an offshoot of the Tie-One-On Program. In 1996 a local necktie manufacturer, Mallory & Church, developed a partnership with The Breakfast Group to provide neckties for the event. This led to the development of the project which includes a necktie design contest for the Project Mister students. With the winning design being manufactured and provided for the participants at the event. The project also includes a marketing component in which the youth, staff and the Breakfast Group members sell the neckties with the proceeds going back to the program. This is an excellent program that introduces the youth to the basics of production, marketing and sale of a product.

Scholarship Programs (All Achievers Program)The Breakfast Group Scholarship Program is directed primarily at low-income youth who are recommended by counselors and principals at the 16 public high schools. Scholarship awardees are selected from a pool of candidates submitted by the schools. A scholarship committee selects the awardees based on the quality of the criteria presented by each candidate. Key selection elements are grade point average, community activities, extra-curricular school activities, letter of recommendation, and a written essay. The number of scholarships is based on the funds available from Breakfast Group fund raising efforts. Most scholarship awards are for one year- $1,000 for 4 year institutions; $500 for a 2 year college. Several Legacy Awards are given to the highest achievers. These awards are for 4 years at $1,000 per year provided the student maintains a grade point average of 2.5 or better.
