2013/2014 Season Testimonials Included:


 

"I have a student that lived to be a part of Books2boards. He struggled with academics, but would try to pull it together so that he could participate. I appreciated that your program helped him to get out and enjoy the outdoors when he was struggling with school life and his personal life. I think it really made a difference for him."

"Really all I have to say is this is a fantastic program! Books2boards keeps so many students motivated to work hard for a majority of the school year. They strive academically, so they can get outside and participate in a healthy activity. What could be wrong with that? I have been impressed with the organization and support of staff who participate in the program. Yahoo Eaglecrest! What a great endeavor."

"I have loved this program both as a parent and as a staff member. It's great to see kids who cannot afford to ski indepently, being able to discuss the slopes with their peers. I think the program helps equilize students from different socioeconomic backgrounds and gives some students who have nothing else in common, something to talk about."
JCCS staff member
& Parent of a B2B student - May 2014

"I have not had a child participate in the program, but have been on the school end of it and I think it is an amazing program. Mostly because it serves a group of students that would probably not be up on the mountain if it were not for your program. It touches a part of the population that very frequently misses out for one reason or another. I know for some of the kids it is a chance for them to feel "normal", like so many of their peers. I'm not sure how to put it, but what you are doing is GOOD and I hope it reaches those kids for many years to come."

"I have been trying to get my husband to ski with the kids for 5 years. He skied as a kid but wouldn't go. He went this year. So, no I don't think he would have [gone skiing] without B2B. My two other children would have gone, but not as much. Dad bought skis and wants to buy a season pass next year!"

In response to the positive or negative changes B2B has had on students parents said:


 

"Yes! She gets up early on her ski days. She not only gets her ski stuff ready the night before, but she also gets her school stuff ready so she wont have to do it when she gets home. This is a huge plus for us!"
