Breaking the Cycle is an amazing organization that effectively addresses the needs of DC youth. Since it is run by youth the program is able to provide the necessary resources, support, and motivation to foster DC youth both academically and socially. I have already seen so many successes through Breaking the Cycle and look forward to seeing its growth in the future.

I find that Breaking the Cycle provides a unique opportunity for students and mentors to engage in positive and motivating experiences.

Beyond basic tutoring, BTC inspires at risk youth to explore higher education and career opportunities in a supportive and caring environment.

Over the past two years, I've witnessed students within the organization excel by being the first in their families to graduate high school/college and receive jobs. Most importantly, I've seen senior members of the organization act as leaders and role models to further promote positive decision making among youth.

Breaking the Cycle has provided me with a unique perspective into the challenges faced by many DC school children. The experience has helped me grow as a person and allowed me to profoundly affect the kids we tutored. The program is well run and makes the experience fun.

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.
