"With budgets at every level of government being cut, including many types of support for children and youth, the impact of an organization like EBAC with a strong track record is substantial. They're helping raise the standard for student achievement, creating a more level playing field for kids so that they have a fighting chance to stay in school, to learn, and to have some of that learning reinforced at home and in the community."
