Teaching Fellowship

Breakthrough Minneapolis is a chapter within Breakthrough Collaborative which comprises 25 sites across the country. Its overall mission is to launch high potential middle school students on the path to college, while also inspiring talented high school and college students to pursue careers in education. 

At Breakthrough Minneapolis, we achieve this mission by using a “students-teaching-students” model. During our 9 weeks of summer programming, 20 talented high school and college students work as teachers, advisors, and mentors for 80 middle school students from Minneapolis Public Schools. Breakthrough Minneapolis teachers are creative, diverse, intelligent, and highly motivated. They represent many academic and personal backgrounds, but share a commitment to students and educational equity. Breakthrough Minneapolis is in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. Every summer, it offers:

·      $4,500 stipend & housing options
·      180 hours of culturally responsive, student-centered teacher & leadership training
·      35 hours of lead classroom teaching
·      Autonomy to develop your own curriculum and course content
·      Leadership opportunities in committee-structures and program planning
·      Your own classroom for 6 intensive weeks
