THE STORY:

Every 26 seconds in America, a kid drops out of school. And poor students are 5 times more likely to drop out than kids from families with higher income. Breakthrough New York (BTNY) believes that the socioeconomic background of a child in NYC should not determine the quality of education he or she receives. This is why, as a member of BTNY's Young Professionals Board, I’ve committed to raising money for  BTNY's "Make a Breakthrough" campaign. I support this campaign because of students like Jessica.

Jessica is in the 9th grade at Leman Manhattan Preparatory. She lives in the Bronx and her favorite subject in school in science. She hasn't decided what career to pursue, but is most interested in being a lawyer or anything in the medical sciences. She says she "wants to make sure that in my career I am able to give back to my community and help those in need". 

Jessica is incredibly thankful for BTNY and for supporters like yourself who help to open doors and provide a quality education for all students of all backgrounds. 

Currently 96% of our kids qualify for federal free or reduced lunch; 84% will be the first in their family to attend college; 40% come from single-parent households and 43% speak English as a second language. The average annual household income for a family of four is $42,000.

Since 2005, 100% of BTNY 8th graders were admitted into selective college prep high schools. Since our founding, 98% matriculated at 4 year colleges and last year 100% went to a four-year university, such as Bard College, Brown University, Middlebury College, Harvard University and Wesleyan University.

Thank you so much for your support!
