Jim Duckworth

BTGP Chair and President, Arcadia Land Company

Jason Duckworth is the president of Arcadia Land Company, a regional developer of walkable neighborhoods.  Jason is a graduate of Princeton and Oxford and lives in Center City with his wife Angela Duckworth and their two college-age daughters.

Why Breakthrough?

My wife and I love Breakthrough’s commitment to high academic standards and its recognition that “more school”—even over the summer—is a fundamental part of closing the education opportunity gap.  With its “students teaching students” model, Breakthrough draws some of the best and brightest college students into teaching careers.
