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

We are excited to be able to tour the schools in person once again!  Don't miss out on this opportunity to see our classrooms in action and learn more about Breakthrough Public Schools and education in Cleveland.

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.

We kindly request all guests to RSVP as space is often limited in our schools. RSVP to Tim Mann at 216-373-2604 or
