Breakthrough Greater BostonCambridge, MA 02238



BTGB is currently seeking dynamic and talented high school and college students with a passion for urban education to teach during our After School Program. Teaching Fellows will be responsible for delivering instructional content in a structured and supportive classroom setting consisting of 6-10 middle school students. Teaching Fellows receive training, professional development, and ongoing instructional coaching and support from experienced teachers throughout the fellowship.


BTGB’s After School Program is designed for students to connect with the Breakthrough community, receive support on school work, and gain exposure to exciting, rigorous content. Teachers in the program engage with students in educational activities such as chess and juggling before heading to homework support, where they help small groups of students with their schoolwork. Each session concludes with academic workshops that teachers lead on topics including spoken word, engineering by design, chemistry of cooking, and web design.
