Getting Involved on Campus: Books and Basketball

Looking for a fun and rewarding way to get involved on campus… look no further, I have the answers for you: Books & Basketball!


What is Books & Basketball?

Books & Basketball is a nonprofit organization that sends WashU students to local grade schools to mentor students. A typical day at Books and Basketball consists of 45 minutes of homework help followed by 45 minutes of gym time. Basketball and other organized games provide a great opportunity for the kids to form meaningful relationships with tutors while they simultaneously develop valuable social skills. The benefits of gym time translate to the tutoring portion because the positive relationships formed help to maintain a level of respect that contributes to successful learning and homework completion.
