Breakthrough Miami

About Breakthrough Miami

Breakthrough Miami provides an academic enrichment program that uses a unique students-teaching-students model to create a rigorous, vibrant learning community, where highly motivated, traditionally unrepresented 5th - 12th grade students are supported to achieve postsecondary success, and emerging leaders are inspired to become the next generation of educators and advocates.

This award-winning program serves 1,300 talented students. More than 95 percent of our students attend public middle schools and high schools in Miami-Dade County, while participating in our enrichment activities on five independent school sites -- Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, Gulliver Prep, Miami Country Day School, Palmer Trinity School and Ransom Everglades School, and also University of Miami.

“I enjoyed being able to work with kids and share some of my interests with them. During a time when people were feeling socially isolated, I liked that I got to have interaction with others and really feel like part of a team.”
