Breakthrough Summer Teacher Intern (Nationwide) - Application Deadline

Mon, February 25, 2013

Breakthrough Collaborative has over 30 years of successful experience preparing low-income, motivated middle-schools students from across the country to enter and succeed in college-preparatory high-school programs by recruiting, training and supporting outstanding college and high-school students to teach them.

Breakthrough students dream of college but attend under-resourced schools. With the promise of energetic young teachers, they complete rigorous applications to Breakthrough where they dedicate their summer vacations to hard work in pursuit of their academic goals. 90% of our students are of color and most will be the first in their families to graduate from four-year colleges. During our 6-week intensive summer program, Breakthrough students participate in literature, math, writing, and science classes, complete an average of two hours of homework each night, and enjoy daily enrichment activities. Nearly three-quarters of Breakthrough students enter two- and four-year colleges, three times the rate of their peers.

Applicants from all majors and areas of study are encouraged to apply. STEM majors are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applicants need not have prior teaching experience but must be committed to closing the Opportunity and Achievement Gaps. To be eligible, prospective Breakthrough teacher intern candidates must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate program. Rising undergraduate freshman and college seniors are eligible to apply. Non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply if they are authorized to work in the U.S.

Please see BTT Gateway (Job ID 6743) for further information.  To apply, complete and submit the online application at by February 25, 2013. To be considered, Breakthrough must receive a completed recommendation for each applicant (accomplished via the online application form). Select candidates will be asked to submit additional materials for the selection process.
