Breakthrough at Fort Worth Country Day School
An Educational Enrichment Program for Underserved Students Breakthrough?s Purpose Breakthrough Fort Worth helps high potential public middle school students from underserved backgrounds open the door to college goals. The program empowers students to advance on the path to higher education, preparing them with knowledge, study skills, social experiences, leadership training, and guidance. It also encourages talented and diverse high school and college students to pursue careers in education. Students participate in several distinct elements, including: ?An intensive six-week summer session that sets the bar for student learning and accomplishment ?Monthly Super Saturdays and Weekend CREW activities throughout the school year that continue involvement and learning momentum ?Unique community service activities that help Breakthrough students better understand their responsibility to and involvement in their community ?Program events that also provide occasions for Breakthrough students to develop and improve their social skills Prominent community partners include the Fort Worth Independent School District, the City of Fort Worth, Texas Christian University, Tarrant County Community College, University of Texas at Arlington, and Texas Wesleyan University. Additionally, Trinity Valley School, All Saints Episcopal School, volunteer groups from FWCD student and parent organizations, the Junior League of Fort Worth, Breakthrough family groups, and a host of individual community advocates contribute to the program?s many achievements. The Program?s History Breakthrough Fort Worth has been empowering underserved children for more than 17 years. One of only three sites in Texas, it is the longest-running program in the state. There are only 28 sites affiliated with the national Breakthrough Collaborative, each one funded and governed locally. Breakthrough Fort Worth envisions a brighter academic future for these young people, complete with training, mentoring, encouragement, group support, and a defined path to their dreams of a college education. Building Knowledge Seventh and eighth grade students increase competence in core academics, such as English, math, science and social studies. They also develop improved study techniques and incorporate subjects that demand critical thinking, such as mock trials, computer programming, weird science, visual arts, etc. Students in grade nine add community service, high school preparation, and college readiness classes to their activities. Learning Leadership The program?s structure promotes team-building and allows all students to serve as team leaders on a rotating basis. High-energy ?All School? meetings provide a forum for spirited interaction, group encouragement, and presentations of what the students have learned in class. Gaining Social Skills Students participate in field trips and events that help them build confidence in social interaction. The program?s annual Fancy Meal fundraising luncheon is a perfect example. Students attend the event and prepare for it by practicing table etiquette, reviewing suitable dress and conduct, and role-playing a variety of conversation topics. Developing Commitment Breakthrough Fort Worth represents a six-year commitment from students and their families. Children enter the program as rising seventh graders. They agree to establish educational goals and fulfill all Breakthrough classes and activities for three years, plus receive ongoing guidance, assessment, mentoring and tutoring until they graduate high school. Student Population ?At least 81% of students qualify for the Free/Reduced Federal Lunch program. ?Ethnicities reflect 65% Hispanic, 20% African-American, 7% Asian, 7% Caucasian, and 1% other. ?Some live in conditions of poverty, and most reside in low-income neighborhoods with inadequate or little access to community-building services. ?Their family environment may include only one parent. ?For more than 40% of these students, English is not the primary language spoken in their homes. Some are first-generation U.S. citizens managing language barriers. ?More than 90% of our students will be the first in their family to attend college.

CASA of Santa Cruz County
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). Your donations to CASA will provide a trained advocate to support a child who has been physically or sexually abused, neglected or abandoned. To learn more visit www.CasaOfSantaCruz.org When the Juvenile Court has determined that a child must be removed from his or her home to avoid further danger, the impact on the child can lead to an increased sense of vulnerability, helplessness and confusion that can stay with them a lifetime. You can offer an abused child hope and possibility. CASA of Santa Cruz County recruits, screens, trains and supervises volunteers to act on behalf of one child in the juvenile dependency court system. The CASA develops a one-on-one relationship with the child. CASA volunteers also work with attorneys and social workers. They review records, research information, and talk to anyone involved with the child, including parents, extended family members, doctors and teachers. From information gathered, a volunteer presents his or her best recommendations to the judge, for the safety and welfare of his or her CASA child. Very often, a case involving an abused child can slip through the cracks in the overburdened child welfare system. The best hope for that child is one pair of eyes and ears focused intently upon him or her. Those eyes and ears belong to that child's very own personal CASA volunteer.
