What We Do
Breakthrough Miami is an eight-year, tuition-free academic enrichment program that provides motivated middle-school students from underserved communities with the tools they need to achieve their most ambitious goals in life. Our students-teaching-students internship engages outstanding older students as teachers, mentors and role models, so that our scholars enter and thrive in college-prep high schools and enroll in college. This award-winning program serves 1,000 talented students. More than 95 percent of our students attend public middle- and high-schools in Miami-Dade County, while participating in our enrichment activities on five independent school sites -- Ransom Everglades, Miami Country Day, Carrollton, Palmer Trinity and Cushman, and at International Studies Charter High School.
