LEARN. TEACH. ACHIEVE.
Inspiring today's students and tomorrow's teachers
The mission of Breakthrough Kent Denver is two-fold:
First, to increase the educational and social opportunities of motivated, under-resourced, urban middle school students through a quality year-round program, and second, to motivate and train talented high school and college students for careers in education.
All services provided by Breakthrough Kent Denver are COMPLETELY FREE to our students and families!
