A two-year academic enrichment program that supports high potential 7th and 8th graders in the Providence public schools. During the school year, Breakthrough students spend more than 40 hours engaged in our academic enrichment and leadership development programming. During the summer, this number more than triples. These additional out-of- school time programming hours are critical for Breakthrough students as they practice and apply the skills they learn in school, build academic confidence, improve academic performance, and become self-advocates and leaders in both their Breakthrough and school communities.Teaching fellows are high school and college students, ages 16-22, from local public, private, and parochial schools. During the Summerbridge Program, teaching fellows are recruited nationally through the Breakthrough Collaborative’s Summer Teaching Fellowship Program.

Break Through to College is a six-year program which provides rigorous and culturally relevant academic enrichment and leadership development during critical out-of-school times to low-income, first generation college-bound Providence public school students. Break Through to College leverages the relational power of near-peers to serve as teachers, tutors, mentors, and advisors through a “students teaching students” model.
