91% of Breakthrough participants are students of color.
Remember the excitement of Celebration, Occupational Field Trip Day and Spirit Week? Well, our Breakthrough sites across the country and in Hong Kong invite Breakthrough alums to come visit and get involved throughout the summer and school year programs. Pick a date and schedule a visit to a local site before the summer is over.
Hosting a small Breakthrough students for Career Day in your city is a great way to give back through mentorship. Contact an affiliate in your city for more information.
During Career Day, Breakthrough students will travel to your office to meet you, participate in some of your morning routine, tour your office and enjoy lunch. These career-focused days give our students (rising 6th, 7th and 8th graders), most of whom will be the first in their families to graduate from college, a sense of the working world and a chance to explore future career opportunities. In preparation for Career Day, students write resumes and practice interviewing skills before embarking on their day of discovery at local business and corporations.
