Summer Volunteer & Employment Opportunities

Join Our Summer Team

Summer Program 2021

Dean of Faculty: Because Breakthrough utilizes a “students teaching students” model, all summer classes are planned and taught by exceptional high school and college students. Approximately 1/3 of our staff each year are composed of student alums of the program who return for a myriad of reasons. Summer teaching fellows bring energy, excitement and a willingness to learn, and the Dean of Faculty brings experience and knowledge. Our Dean of Faculty provides guidance and problem-solving skills to help our teaching fellows grow as pre-service educators through a holistic lens. The responsibilities of the Dean of Faculty include: 

  • Build a community within our faculty 
  • Support Students-Teaching-Students model 
  • Work alongside the Administrative Team (A-Team)
