Dear Breakthrough of Greater Philadelphia Community,
We are pleased to present you with our Annual Report!
Now, more than ever, Philadelphia students need enrichment and support services to supplement their education, open their minds to ideas, and encourage them to pursue higher educational experiences. Our Breakthrough students need opportunities to be heard and to hear the perspectives of others. They need mentors — they need teaching fellows who listen to them, who validate their experiences, and who will support them in both their strengths and areas of growth.
As we move into the holiday season and our annual Breakfast of Champions, we ask that you consider Breakthrough and our families in your giving.
While individuals are most familiar with our summer program, we also offer a school year program. This year, we are striving to meet the needs of our students who need safe virtual programming with physical-distancing and those who need the connectivity of their peers in order to excel at a high level. Additionally, many families are expressing concerns and needs for additional supplementary activities to continue challenging their children in these uncertain times.
Your gift gives us the resources we need to help our students not just to learn, but to envision their futures within an uncertain world.
On behalf of our students, their families, and the Breakthrough Board of Directors and Staff, thank you for your continued commitment to impact the lives of the children and families we serve.
Miriam Leisman Rubin
Interim Managing Director
