The gap in college completion between high- and low-income students reduces by half when both groups of students take calculus by 12th grade.
Each year, Breakthrough ambassadors (teaching fellow alumni) play an instrumental role in inspiring the next generation of Breakthrough teachers. Ambassadors join an incredible network of Breakthrough alumni on campuses across the nation committed to building a movement of undergraduates who are passionate about educational equity. The stories they tell, the work they do, and the connections they make on their campuses directly impact the lives of thousands of Breakthrough students each summer.
Beyond this, ambassadors develop and refine critical skills in communication, relationship building, and leadership. Just as they did during their Breakthrough teaching experience, ambassadors will collaborate and receive feedback regularly.
