Breakthrough Kent Denver will celebrate 25 years of closing the opportunity gap at the Give Your Love to Breakthrough Gala on Thursday, February 20h from 6:00 – 10:00 pm at the Schaden Dining Hall on the campus of the Kent Denver School.
Breakthrough Kent Denver works to both increase the educational and social opportunities of motivated, financially under-resourced middle and high school students in both Englewood Public Schools and Denver Public Schools, as well as motivate and train talented college students for careers in education.
Students commit to a six-year program model focused on improving their academic performance, becoming college ready, and their social-emotional health.
Breakthrough serves 179 middle school students and 190 high school students from over 60 Denver Public Schools and Englewood Public Schools. For the past eight years, 100% of Breakthrough high school seniors graduated, and in 2019, 89% went on to institutions of higher education.
“We are so excited to be celebrating our 25th year at Breakthrough Kent Denver. The gala is time for us to celebrate all of the accomplishments that our students have made and to thank all of those that have generously given their love and support to our program,” said Sarah Dutcher, Executive Director of Breakthrough. “We are looking forward to another 25 years of helping to close the opportunity gap for Denver and Englewood Public School students and train the next generation of teachers.”
