Breakthrough Miami doesn't only give students the chance to expand their learning, it gives them the chance to take on the role of teacher as well.
"I really wanted to be a teacher, and I really wanted to touch the lives of other students and make an impact," says Isabella Peterson, the president of the volunteer council.
She's a volunteer and loves learning as much as she loves teaching others. Although this year the volunteering has gone virtual, she says she's still made friends with other volunteers and scholars as well.
No matter what role you fill in Breakthrough, everyone has a common passion of wanting to learn and wanting to help.
Shaya Lewis, vice president of the volunteer council, has been with the program for six years, starting right before she entered sixth grade.
"I ended up going back every year after that," she says. "I wanted to give back to Breakthrough because I was given so many opportunities."
The program gives these students hands on experience, resulting in visible growth. If you want to learn more, click here to view their website.
