Mission Statement


Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano’s mission:

  • Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano supports local motivated students whose backgrounds are underrepresented in higher education by providing tuition-free academic programming and guidance from middle school through college graduation.

Breakthrough is dedicated to its mission and serving the San Juan Capistrano community. Our unique models, “Students Teaching Students” and “Teachers Training Teachers” unlock the extraordinary potential for students and teachers of all ages to engage each other in learning, teaching and leading. The result of these successful models is a cycle of reciprocal learning in which both the student and the teacher increase the odds of success in middle school, high school, college and beyond.
