School program in Miami-Dade makes a breakthrough

Areli Acevedo was only in fourth grade when she made an eight-year commitment to dedicate half of her Saturdays and every summer through high school to Breakthrough Miami’s free program to prepare her for college. At 14, she now earns top grades at Ponce de Leon Middle School and plans to become a neurosurgeon.
The teen is one of 1,200 students currently in the Breakthrough Miami, a non-profit academic enrichment program that uses a peer-mentoring model to give students from low-income families access to advanced educational opportunities.
