Partners and Mentors – Career Day 2022
Our 2022 Career Day was a phenomenal success!
Our annual Career Day is a highly anticipated part of the summer experience for our 200 8th graders. This year, our Scholars were introduced to careers in a broad diversity of fields, including architecture, entrepreneurship, equity investment, health sciences, hospitality, luxury brand sales and marketing, and wealth management. Thank you to our Corporate Partners for hosting our 8th-grade Scholars! They were inspired by these career pathways for their academic and professional lives ahead.
Corporate partners are integral to our program as Breakthrough Miami is committed to preparing Scholars with 21st-century skills and engaging them with a breadth of professional opportunities. Aligned with our project-based learning approach, students were offered hands-on and immersion experiences with both emerging and experienced professionals.
