Breakthrough Greater Boston (BTGB) improves educational equity by inspiring excitement for learning, creating paths to college, and promoting careers in education. Founded in 1992 by MacArthur Genius Awardee Dr. Angela Duckworth, BTGB is a unique organization with a dual mission to 1) prepare low-income students for success in college and 2) train college students to become the next generation of urban teachers.
After 20+ years of success in Cambridge, BTGB expanded to serve Boston and Somerville students, in 2013 and 2018, respectively. Through six years of intensive, out of school time programming, Breakthrough changes students' academic trajectories and supports them along the path to college. Simultaneously, Breakthrough builds careers in education through an unparalleled teacher training program for college-aged students that features competitive national recruitment, research-based training, and daily coaching from master teachers.
