Who do you want to be this summer?
A summer at Breakthrough Cincinnati is a win-win. You can impact the future success of middle school students while you explore your own future opportunities. Spend your summer inspiring and leading young people as a teaching Fellow or Instructional Coach.
Each summer, Breakthrough Cincinnati hires over 70 hard-working college undergraduates and practicing teachers from all academic backgrounds to join our community. Teaching Fellows and Instructional Coaches have a deep commitment to social justice and passion for working with middle-school students.
Breakthrough Cincinnati simply “becomes a part of you” and the benefits are endless. You will:
- Cultivate the professional skills that will set you apart from the rest.
- Experience a sense of belonging that has you thinking “these are my people.”
- Be responsible for the life-changing learning that takes place in your very own classroom.
- Know you are making a difference when you see a student solve a challenging problem.
- Draw out your inner leader as you oversee special projects and make key program decisions.
- Work with a diverse team of people who care as much as you do about making a difference for youth.
