Student Spotlight 

Camelot Yepez

Mark Twain Elementary


At Mark Twain Elementary, Camelot Yepez from Chicago's Southwest Side has fostered leadership in his community by advocating for a Bridge Tutoring Branch at his school. Camelot has worked with his fellow classmates and Bridge Tutoring's Executive Board to propose expanding the program to a new school and provide academic resources to students in his neighborhood. In creating a new initiative, rallying together his classmates, and speaking to adminstration, Camelot exhibits the qualities of the ideal Bridge Tutoring partner.


The Bridge Tutoring Program depends heavily on the generosity of individuals who strive to see a change in the Chicago Public Schools community. We appreciate any contributions to our cause. Donations are used to purchase learning aids, snacks, and board games.
