The Power of Community

Throughout the year, hundreds of New Yorkers step up and volunteer with Breakthrough New York. Volunteers act as admissions officers and recruiters to help students practice their interview skills; review parent essays for high school applications; and help select our newest cohort of students each year. Volunteers provide critical capacity and new perspectives, and in return, they work with a great group of students.

I’ve been volunteering with BTNY over the last few years, both with my company & individually. BTNY is an amazing 10 year program that helps students throughout NYC move through their schooling and career & it feels great to be able to help the future of this city. Being able to coach & give back has been eye opening in a variety of ways, where it’s clear the program has impacted thousands of lives.

Breakthrough New York children are highly intelligent and focused on creating a bright future for themselves and the world. It was so rewarding to practice with them and help them achieve their best interviews.
