Mission & Vision


The mission of Breakthrough at Kent Denver is two-fold: first, to increase the educational and social opportunities of motivated, financially under-resourced, middle and high school students through a quality year-round program, and second, to motivate and train talented college students for careers in education.


We envision a nation populated by transformational learning communities, where equitable access to excellent opportunities propels aspiring students on their path to college and aspiring teachers on their path to the classroom.

“I love all aspects of Breakthrough, but the people are what truly makes the program special. Being in the house during the pandemic made me feel so isolated. However, Breakthrough gets us outside of our comfort zone and helps us grow to be the best we can be. There is so much time and effort put into making sure we not only grow academically but all around as a student.”
