We are so grateful you're interested in Breakthrough Cincinnati! Breakthrough seeks to provide an academically stimulating summer for bright minds! We're glad you want to be involved!
Breakthrough Cincinnati is a six-week summer enrichment program for local middle school/high school students (grades 6-9). We are always looking for volunteers who wish to make a difference in the lives of motivated and energetic youth and work with supportive and inspirational educators.

Our daily schedule runs from 8:30-5, Monday-Friday. We are not holding academic sessions July 4th this summer in observation Independence Day.
We would enjoy volunteers during any of our scheduled times.
