CREATING FIRST GENERATION COLLEGE GRADUATES
Breakthrough Central Texas provides extended learning, comprehensive advising, and leadership experiences from middle school through college to students in low-income communities who will be the first in their families to graduate from college.
I remember when I first learned about Breakthrough in 6th grade at Martin Middle School. Breakthrough gave a presentation at our school on how they could help students get on the right path to college. I always had a dream of going to college, becoming a professional and being able to help my mom who has done so much for me.
