Breakthrough Central Texas

About Breakthrough Central Texas

Breakthrough builds a path through college, beginning in middle school, for students from low-income communities who will become the first in their families to earn a college degree. Our program combines individualized, long-term case management with extended learning time for students who statistics say will not enroll in or graduate from college without significant support. We believe that by providing innovative educational programs to children and their families, we can have a multi-generational impact – replacing the cycle of poverty with self-sufficiency.


Americorps Teaching Fellow

June 2022 - August 2022 Austin, TX
“I loved teaching my own classes and having the freedom to tailor the curriculum to my students' needs. This job provided exceptional professional development training, and I felt excited for work every day. This role provided me with enough structure (meetings with my instructional coach and a loose curriculum) to succeed while giving me enough space to develop independently as a leader and teacher. ”
