Breakthrough Program tabling Today

LearningWorks at Blake: A Breakthrough Program is one of 24 sites of the Breakthrough Collaborative. We are located in Minneapolis, MN and have a dual mission: to offer a challenging academic enrichment program to a representative group of highly motivated, high potential middle school students from Minneapolis Public Schools, setting them on the path to college by preparing them to enter rigorous high school programs; and to draw talented high school and college students into the education field by engaging them in the art of teaching.

As a part of our LearningWorks PAID internship, summer teaching fellows design and teach original 6-week academic and elective courses to our middle school students. Our teachers receive support from our Curriculum & Instruction Director and licensed teachers, referred to during the summer as Mentor Teachers. In addition to developing curriculum and teaching, our teaching fellows serve as advisors and committee members. Our summer teaching fellows can expect a rigorous, community-centered, engaging environment where they have the opportunity to support amazing middle school students on their paths to college!

Stop by our table at the Christensen Center on January 9 from 10am-1pm!
