Breakthrough Twin Cities Informational Table
Are you interested in making a difference in the lives of youth and have an interest in teaching?
Breakthrough Twin Cities (BTC) prepares under-resourced students for college success and cultivates the next generation of educators. BTC is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit with three sites in the Twin Cities: Mounds Park Academy (MPA), Central High School in Saint Paul (SPC), and Chaska High School through Eastern Carver County Schools (ECC).
Students in our middle school program attend three summers of academic enrichment, where they take classes in math, science, literature, & writing on their six-year path to college with BTC.
Students are taught by a diverse faculty of Teaching Fellows: college and high school students exploring the field of education with training and support from Breakthrough. Middle school students participate in programming throughout the school year to continue building their skills, habits, and résumés to become successful high school students.
Students matriculate into the College Bound program (grades 9-12) where they receive targeted support for each grade of high school. College Bound students also attend programming throughout the school year and receive the support and mentoring of a School Year Coach. Students complete the program by working 1x1 with a college counselor in 11th and 12th grades, with 99% graduating from high school and getting accepted into college.
Last year there were 6 Carls that were Teaching Fellows. They are excited to hire the summer 2022 fellows.
Stop by and talk with Andrea Hite, Associate Program Director or last years fellows, Anastasia Romanova ’22 and Izzy Charlton ’23 to learn more about the program.
