After students brainstormed ways to grow the Growing Leaders business, they got together in committees to make several of these ideas a reality. Below, Erin, Alex, and Silas talk about some of the successes and challenges they experienced while getting the Breakfast Club and the Growing Leaders Cookbook off the ground.
One success this year in Growing Leaders is the morning coffee stand. That’s the group that I was in and we actually put our plan in action and now it’s happening once a month! It feels good that we made that happen.

I was really happy with the Breakfast Club stand, which I was on the committee for. It is cool that it was so successful on its’ first sale and I think it’s really good for reaching our financial goal. I hope it continues to grow.
Something I found surprising was that it is hard to start new projects because everyone has to agree, we have to figure out where to get the money/ goods, and how to make sure that it would make us money consistently.
-Alex, 7th grade
One success I’ve had in this class was helping to finish the cookbook. I didn’t do all that much, but I did assist with this, which succeeded. I worked with the rest of the committee to create a published, artistic notebook.
