Review for Breakthrough Silicon Valley, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

preparing and motivating me to become a lifelong teacher.

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

hire more administrators and full-time employees.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?


Did the organization use your time wisely?

Quite well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


Role:  Volunteer & I taught middle school English for three summers, and worked in various mentoring and leadership roles.
