Breaker’s mission is to drive social innovation and alternative learning by mobilizing interdisciplinary teams of young, creative collaborators to help solve the world’s most pressing problems. We connect our young people with global thought leaders and industry experts to tackle challenges related to literacy, urban agriculture, and technology for civic engagement. We facilitate a creative problem-solving design process and teach the entrepreneurial skills necessary to transform ideas into businesses. Each Breaker project brings together the Breaker team, the visionaries who pose the challenge, and the industry experts who support their process. We work with multiple partner organizations to ideate, build, and test real solutions with real market value. Participants leave Breaker with new perspectives and abilities. Products that result from Breaker projects are ready to be stress-tested and developed.
