Breakthrough SF

breakthrough school day

Breakthrough supports San Francisco students on the path to college and trains outstanding college students for education careers. In the 2019-20 school year and ensuing summer, Breakthrough will work with 244 hard-working students in grades 5 – 12; 32 college students exploring the challenges and rewards of a teaching career; and 150 volunteers ranging from adults to eighth graders at SF Day.

We are proud that 100% of students in the Classes of 2018 and 2019 - our first two graduating classes - are currently attending college, including 88% at four-year schools. Meanwhile, 63% of Teaching Fellows who graduated from college since 2011 are now working in the education sector, most as classroom teachers in urban public schools.
