Breaking the Cycle
April 13, 2011

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.

The Great!

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

Witnessing youth members actively make positive decisions such as attend summer school, apply to colleges and volunteer in their communities.

Ways to make it better...

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

Expand the organization's reach and apply successful strategies to other areas with at risk youth such as New York City.
