Breaking the cycle is a great organization that gets really involved in the community. BTC has made a great impact on the community by holding different functions like award shows, basketball games with the community and many more fun events that help promote youth awareness. Breaking the Cycle has opened my mind up to the community and makes me feel like I am really giving back to all the youth growing up in the community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

How we give back to the community and in a fun way. We promote so many things that leave a big impact on some of the youth we talk to every day. As a college student I encourage that we promote the college opportunity as much as we can.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

If this organization had 10 million dollars. We would be able to touch a lot more youth and encourage and give them hope about the future. We would have more resources to fund many of the community projects like a youth book drive that promotes reading

Breaking the Cycle was founded by the most giving and caring teacher along with a group of talented students. I have personally witnessed this organization do wonders for DC youth. This is proof that it does not matter where you come from- success and opportunity awaits anyone who is willing to work hard- who is willing to care- and who wishes to work with Breaking the Cycle.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Witnessing struggling students rise above their life situations in order to get the support they need to graduate high school and move on to go to college...and come back to their community to give back to other young students in need.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Watching the founders TRULY care about community and youth.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Start Breaking the Cycle sister organizations across the nation to help inner city students reach their goals and see their dreams come to life.
