A summer at Breakthrough Cincinnati is a win-win

Spend your summer inspiring and leading young people as a Teaching Fellow or Instructional Coach. You can impact the success of middle school students while you explore your own future career opportunities.


Opportunity

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.

  • Learn and practice classroom management and instructional strategies and receive feedback from professional teachers.

  • Work on a team to plan and lead special events.

Instructional Coaches will:
