Breakthrough’s School Year Program Teachers are responsible and dynamic college and graduate school students with diverse backgrounds, skills, and academic interests. They instill a love of learning in our students, and teach them the skills necessary to thrive in their schools and get on the path to college.
School Year Program teachers work on an internship basis instructing one academic subject, assisting students with school assignments and projects, and supporting the overall program during special trips and workshops. The School Year Program is held 10 am – 2 pm, two Saturdays per month, October through May.
Since 2013, we have partnered with Arcadia University as a fieldwork placement option at our Germantown Friends School location. School Year Interns/Field Work Teachers work under supervision of our Dean of Faculty. Interns are expected to be present for all Saturdays of their instructional term.
For 2021 – 2022, Curricula Include:
- Public Speaking
- Financial Literacy
Breakthrough is open to developing partnerships with area colleges and universities for pre-service teachers. If you are interested in considering Breakthrough of Greater Philadelphia for a pre-service instructional experience for your school, please contact our offices.
