BENEFITING: THE BREAKTHROUGH COLLABORATIVE
Kevin and I were fortunate to attend a fundraiser for this brilliant group, Breakthrough. Its mission is to provide intensive, year-round academic support to motivated kids from elementary to high school age, who would otherwise have limited educational opportunities. The students who've been through the programme, as well as those trained to teach and coach them, were inspiring. As a child, I was lucky enough to have access to great schools, and perhaps more importantly an amazingly supportive home. Not everyone is so lucky. I firmly believe that anything we can do that helps ensure equal access to education - no matter your gender, ethnicity or family circumstance - will help build a brighter and more equitable future for all.
