Webber Charles is the Senior Site Director at Breakthrough Miami. Breakthrough Miami is an eight-year, tuition-free academic enrichment program that provides motivated middle-school students from underserved communities with the tools they need to achieve their most ambitious goals in life. Breakthrough Miami’s students-teaching-students internship engages outstanding older students as teachers, mentors and role models, so that our scholars enter and thrive in college-prep high schools and enroll in college. This award-winning program serves 1,200 talented students. More than 95 percent of our students attend public middle- and high-schools in Miami-Dade County, while participating in our enrichment activities on six independent school sites — Ransom Everglades, Miami Country Day School, Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, Palmer Trinity School, Gulliver Schools and University of Miami.
