This is a wonderful non-profit both to work for and for the kids who are served. No program I know of makes a greater attempt to curb the education inequities in this country.

I have taught with Breakthrough the past three years and have seen first-hand how it changes the lives of both the middle school students and the high school and college teachers.

I am currently working toward my elementary teaching credential, and am so thankful for the first-hand
experience I gained at BSV. I certainly learned more there than I have in any class!

BSV is everything a non-profit should be. The leaders truly care about the students and teachers and work relentlessly for the cause. They use the resources they have available to make a meaningful and visual impact on the populations they serve. They are introspective, and, consequentially, BSV is continuously changing and improving.

The Great!

preparing and motivating me to become a lifelong teacher.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hire more administrators and full-time employees.
