What is Beards & Books?
Beards and Books is an educational programme which focuses on providing tuition, delivering mentoring workshops, publishing online educational content, hosting story time events and curating subscription boxes for children and young people.
What makes us different ?
Beards & Books is a social enterprise that approaches learning from a dynamic angle. We use our creativity to adapt to different learning styles, and we include positive life skills, such as healthy nutrition, culinary skills, meditation, literature and critical thought, into our curriculum.
Our profits in tutoring are reinvested back into the community. We understand that many additional education services are hard to obtain due to expenses, travel, besides other barriers. This is why we use the money to provide affordable tuition to families that cannot afford it privately, delivering and furthering our social aims.
Supporting the community, Beards & Books wants to ensure that young people have access to multicultural books as well as enjoy an increased presence of BAME tutors. We want to break down barriers that are caused by the lack of representation of the BAME community in education, providing localised role models and encouraging students to perform to the best of their ability and more.
