Teaching Fellow Alumni Report 2018

Breakthrough’s national office administered the Teaching Fellow Alumni Survey between December 2016 and February 2017 to document the trajectories of program participants from the summer cohort years of 2009 through 2016. Surveys were sent to over 5,100 teaching fellow alumni from across the Collaborative and yielded a 19% response rate.

Each year, Breakthrough ambassadors play an instrumental role in inspiring the next generation of Breakthrough teaching fellows. Ambassadors join an incredible network of teaching fellow 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.

Ambassadors build on what they learned in the classroom and will continue to develop and refine critical skills in leadership, communication, relationship building, and strategic thinking.

To be eligible to apply, applicants must be a Breakthrough teaching fellow alumna/us and currently enrolled in an undergraduate program. Applicants from all campuses, majors, years, and affiliate sites are encouraged to apply.
