Please join us to celebrate the efforts of our seasonal staff and volunteers in their support of Breakthrough New York's students' achievements. Proceeds from this comedy show will support our Education Access Fund , which includes direct funding to families to cover unmet financial needs for high school and college admissions, seasonal staff wages, and other resources to operate our program.

 

Breakthrough New York empowers students from low-income backgrounds to access and succeed in college . Through our tuition-free, ten-year program, we provide academic enrichment through summer and after-school opportunities; coach students to gain admissions into selective high schools and colleges; and expose students to diverse interests and careers so they can shape their own trajectories. We currently serve over 500 highly motivated students from 7th grade through college.

Personalized mentorship and support are signature elements of the Breakthrough model, with over 200 near-peer seasonal staff and volunteers who lead programming, serve as mentors, and coach students through applications. In response to the additional hurdles posed by COVID-19, our seasonal staff and volunteers have gone above and beyond to support our students this year .
