Experience Breakthrough: Tour our program or Volunteer at one of our summer programs
Summer is an exciting time for Breakthrough, as hundreds of middle school, high school and college students kick off their summer learning with us. We would love for you to share in their experience and see our programs in action!
As the culmination of Breakthrough’s summer program, students at each grade level demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have developed by participating in Presentations of Learning. Community volunteers are asked to provide essential feedback on student presentations.
