Upcoming Events

Friends of Breakthrough organizes several events year-round in support of our Breakthrough schools and scholars. Use the buttons to navigate to each event, or scroll through the page to learn more about what is happening next.

School Tours

As we wind down for summer break, we don't want you to miss out on the opportunity to see our classrooms in action and learn more about Breakthrough Public Schools and education in Cleveland.  Tours will resume in the new school year.

Each school tour event will include a briefing and dialogue with school leaders and Friends of Breakthrough President, John Zitzner, along with a school tour. All are free and open to the public.

Until then, for more information or to schedule a tour, contact Tim Mann at 216-373-2604 or
