ENGAGE WITH OUR STUDENTS 

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.

HIGH SCHOOL LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE 

The Leadership Institute will help our 10th and 11th  grade students develop life skills that are essential to their success in college and beyond. New this year, students will take on the role of college recruiters and give their best pitch to persuade prospective students (community volunteers) to attend their campus. Students will demonstrate their college knowledge, leadership, and communication skills covered over our two-week program in a concise, refined presentation to adult volunteers and partners.  Volunteers will have the opportunity to share meaningful feedback and vote for their top pitches.
