Breakthru’s Learn-2-Earn feature helps students personally, professionally, and financially in just a few minutes a day. While a micro-payment from Breakthru certainly isn’t going to eliminate student debt entirely, it can cover a safe Uber ride from the library after studying late, a Netflix subscription to help decompress at the end of a long day, a toilet paper order from Amazon, or a Venti-Iced-Cappuccino once a week without buyers remourse. Learn-2-Earn allows students to explore different career, volunteer, or financial opportunities while adding to their Breakthru wallets. Instead of having students pay to use resources, we are giving them unlimited opportunities to build and grow their net worth so that they can pay for college as well as fulfill other various personal needs. Students have multiple ways to earn while using the Breakthru app. One option students have is the Play-2-Earn feature, where students complete a Daily Opportunity by showing their interest in a few general opportunities. Then, students will be able to unlock our in-app spin-the-wheel game, where they can generate points and keep trying their hand at a scholarship bonus. Another way students can earn is by achieving Badges through discovering opportunity, and accessing future-enhancing information. Learn-2-Earn helps students by giving them a chance to feel accomplished because they are earning on their own without having to look too far or high. The feeling you get when you’ve earned something also brings a lot of reassurance. With the launch of a new Learn-2-Earn feature, Breakthru announces a partnership with Forage, CollegeXpress, and Front Office Sports to help create equitable access to financial, education and career opportunities. Breakthru Opportunities are created by companies students already know about, or haven’t met yet. Forage, CollegeXpress, and Front Office Sports recently launched their own Learn-2-Earns, providing engaging student opportunities filled with career-building, financial, and professional resources. Students that show interest in listed opportunities are prompted to earn badges showing that they have interacted with a specific opportunity or that they have reached one of Breakthru’s in-app milestones. Students like earning badges to show their progress or achievements. Earning a badge tells a student that they have achieved a goal! It’s a boost of accomplishment that can help students feel good about themselves, while learning something new that can help them in the future (plus a micro-payment).

Janet Raloff, a Science News staffer for 40 years, is the driving force behind the brilliance of Science News for Students. She’s committed to journalistic excellence while also educating a new generation on all thing’s science. Founded in 2003, Science News for Students is an award-winning online publication dedicated to providing age-appropriate, topical science news to learners, parents and educators. Science News for Students is a publication of the Science News Media Group, which is a program of the Society for Science, a non-profit 501(c)(3) membership organization dedicated to public engagement in scientific research and education. Science News for Students — which is free to use — helps to fulfil the Society’s mission by connecting the latest in scientific research to learning in and out of the classroom. Since 1921, when renowned journalist Edward W. Scripps and California zoologist William Emerson Ritter founded the Society (then known as Science Service), the Society has conveyed the excitement of science and research directly to the public through its award-winning publications. The organization launched its flagship publication in 1921 as Science News-Letter. The publication, which was redesigned as a magazine in 1926, quickly grew into a prime source of science news for libraries, schools and individuals. Renamed Science News in 1966, this award-winning magazine now attracts millions of readers annually to its daily online and biweekly print publications. Science News for Students (formerly Science News for Kids) publishes award-winning journalism on research across the breadth of science, health and technology fields. It aims to bring these new developments to a younger audience. Published daily, Science News for Students posts both shorter news stories and longer features, all written with a vocabulary and sentence structure aimed at readers 9 to 14 years old. The breadth of technical subjects and tone attracts many advanced readers as well. Our stories highlight ongoing research in fields ranging from astronomy to zoology. (Science News for Students does not publish original scientific results.) Stories are reported by experienced science journalists, many with PhDs in the fields on which they write. To help teachers, parents and other educators, each story includes further readings, citations to the original research on which the stories are based, power words (glossary terms) and a readability score that ensures the text is accessible to teens and tweens. Many stories also have extra materials to aid in classroom use. In addition, Science News for Students publishes other features that show students, teachers and parents how science really works, what scientists do, what goes into conducting first-class research and science projects and how anyone can get involved in doing science. The Society for Science also runs world-class science-education competitions for youth — the Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS), the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and Broadcom MASTERS. Today, the Society is dedicated to providing concise, accurate science news and inspirational opportunities to over 115,000 subscribing members, the 50,000 worldwide alumni of our competitions and millions of unique online visitors and social media followers.
ExploreHealthCareers.org is a free, peer-reviewed website designed to educate students and advisors about health careers. ExploreHealthCareers.org’s mission is to help solve two urgent problems in U.S. health care: the under-representation of minorities in the workforce and the shortage of health professionals in medically underserved communities. ExploreHealthCareers.org hopes to help build a stronger health care workforce by providing easy access to updated, peer-reviewed career descriptions that inspire and motivate students to find health careers that suit them. Their vision is to see the health professionals of tomorrow be highly skilled and motivated, and as diverse as the patients they serve. Considering that, health care is a vast field that offers a range of diverse opportunities, it is important that all student research before deciding on a position to make sure you choose one that’s a good fit for them. People can start with the Career Explorer in their website, as it collects details about all different types of health care positions to allow you to compare and contrast those that interest you. Furthermore, the best health care practitioners are committed to giving their patients the best care possible. These health care practitioners prioritize keeping up with the latest developments in the field, continuing to study and learn long after their initial schooling ends. If you have a similar interest in lifelong learning, it’s a good idea to consider entering the health care field. Finally, Health care is increasingly focusing on team work as patients’ recovery depends more and more on how well each member of the team performs his or her specific function and how well they communicate and collaborate with one another. Even dentists — 70% of whom work in a solo private practice — usually supervise and work closely with several staff members. When choosing a health care position, you’ll want to consider the amount of teamwork it requires to ensure it’s a good fit for you and your working style.

Education First (EF) provides life-changing education for global citizens. For over 50 years, our mission has been to give confidence and freedom to people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds. With the desire to define your own path in life, and a little courage, Education First opens up a world of possibilities. We transform dreams into international opportunities. We combine language training with cultural exchange, academic achievement and educational travel to deliver courses and programs that transform dreams into international opportunities. In the early 1960s, a young Swedish man named Bertil Hult traveled to England for the first time. As a dyslexic, school had always been a challenge for him. But he was surprised by how effortlessly he picked up English in England. Bertil became convinced that traditional classroom-based teaching was not always the most effective. In 1965, he decided to start a small company called Europeiska Ferieskolan (European Holiday School – EF for short) that combined language learning with travel abroad. He called the program Språkresor, or Language Travel, which provided one of the world's first hands-on learning experiences outside the classroom. Today, experiential learning is a cornerstone of modern education. For Education First, it has been the philosophy behind every program for 50 years. This simple but effective way to learn has helped us become the world’s largest educational organization.
