Breakthrough at Norfolk Academy students graduated today! Before they received their well-earned diplomas, program associate director Reggie Cole praised the students for their hard work and commitment, dedicating themselves to learning during summer months when it would've been a lot easier to rest and relax. "They all stepped up to the challenge," Mr. Cole said.

Corey Brooks '22, a former Breakthrough student who served as a teacher this summer, spoke to the new graduates about the importance of that hard work they put in and how it will pay off. They learned respect and should be proud of their achievements, he said.

"The values taught at Breakthrough translate to every situation life throws at us," said Corey, who will attend the University of Pennsylvania. "Due to Breakthrough, I feel more than ready to tackle any situation in this next stage of my life."

Graduation closed with some impressive musical, literary, and comedic performances, along with testimonials from the students. "I came wanting to quit, but left not wanting to leave," Terryl said.

Congratulations to all the graduates and their teachers who worked so hard all summer! #NorfolkAcademy #BreakthroughTogether #NABreakthrough Breakthrough Collaborative

We are champions of the National Partnership for Student Success (NPSS), a diverse coalition that connects nonprofits, school districts, state and local education agencies, federal agencies, philanthropy, and national and community organizations to support increased access to and implementation of student support programs, provides technical assistance and research to enhance program effectiveness, and helps to recruit AmeriCorps members and volunteers to the effort.

All students deserve the opportunities and the support they need to succeed. Despite the heroic efforts of schools, educators, and families, the pandemic exacerbated educational and mental health challenges and widened long-standing inequities and opportunity gaps.

To address these challenges, the President is calling for Americans to become tutors, mentors, success coaches, post-secondary transition coaches, and wraparound/integrated support providers. In pursuit of this goal, the NPSS will focus on these five key, evidence-based areas to support the needs of students both in and out of school.
