As summer quickly came to an end for 20 rising eleventh-grade students, Abilitie had the opportunity to interact with engaged, hard working, and bright young minds in their Professional Experiences Institute through Breakthrough Central Texas.
Breakthrough builds a path through college, beginning in middle school, for students from low-income communities who will become the first in their families to earn a college degree. The program combines individualized, long-term case management with extended learning time for students who statistics say will not enroll in or graduate from college without significant support.
The Abilitie team served on a panel to observe and listen to student's presentations about key learnings from their summer. Members of the panel were given the opportunity to deliver presentation feedback, ask questions and continue conversations with the students around their future development goals.
Abilitie holds a vision to change the way people learn and our team was ecstatic to work with an organization who fosters learning in new and innovative ways for our younger generation!
