2018-2019 School Year Program Teacher Application @ Breakthrough Providence
Breakthrough Providence has a dual mission: to create a pathway to college for low-income, academically motivated middle school students in Providence Public Schools, and to encourage talented high school and college students to pursue careers in education.

We run two programs during the school year. Please read the descriptions of each one in order to decide which best suits your schedule (e.g., school, sports, clubs) and interests! If you have the time and energy, we encourage you to apply to more than one program! Note: all programs take place at The Wheeler School on Hope Street, and all programs take a vacation mid-December through late January.

The DEADLINE for applications is OCTOBER 10TH. We are accepting applications on a rolling basis, so submit yours ASAP! We can't wait to welcome another batch of brainy and zany teachers to the Breakthrough Providence family!
