Join us on Thursday, October 26th at 8:15am to celebrate & support our Scholars & Teaching Fellows at Breakthrough of Greater Philadelphia!



Breakthrough's program is critical for youth and education in Philadelphia — most especially as our schools face teacher shortages and students recover from pandemic learning loss. Our four-year academic, co-curricular enrichment and high school readiness program runs tuition-free for educationally underserved middle school students in public, parochial, and charter schools in Philadelphia. For Teaching Fellows, Breakthrough provides professional development, $5,000 stipend per term and free summer housing, donated by Temple University and University of Pennsylvania. Breakthrough operates on the campus of Germantown Friends School.

Breakthrough Scholars and Teaching Fellows will benefit tremendously from your support! We look forward to seeing you on October 26th to celebrate our students and the power of education in transforming lives.

Planning Committee: Amy Branch, Nanie Flaherty, Cornelius Brown, Kevin Emancipator, Susan Fleming, Beth Gonzales, Dr. Walter Greason, Michelle Palmer, Kanchan Rai, Michelle Reyes Aleti, Michelle Todd-Coleman, David Wade, and David Zavitz
