"My experience with Breakthrough these past three years has been phenomenal, as I was able to grow in a safe and supporting community an environment. I also was able to call the people at Breakthrough a family as I know that they were always there to support me when I needed it and they made sure to contact me to make sure that I was doing alright when I needed it."

“Breakthrough is an amazing program that not only provides resources to those students who attend under resourced schools, but it also provides a family for them. It is a program where they grow academically and as a person over all. Somewhere where the students learn to love school and learn to set goals.”

Katie Fraser, Breakthrough Teaching Fellow, Summer 2021, University of Chicago
“Breakthrough has the ability to change your life! The ways you improve in your teaching skills are so revolutionary towards becoming a better teacher in the future. Additionally, spending so much time with these students allows you to create amazing relationships with them.”
