How it all started

On April 25, 2014,  we maxed our credit cards and used all our savings to take 95 young entrepreneurs to Miami.  


This was the beginning of Breakout.

From the get-go we learned that a city is more than a location, but a character in the conversation itself. We learned that there are so many community-driven rule-breakers in our country who deserve a spotlight, and we learned that we had to keep going.

Today, we've completed 9 immersive trips to 7 cities, including Detroit, Baltimore and Atlanta. We have a crew of thousands of young people across the country who gather around the issues and people progressing America, and we've expanded our city and change-maker in-person storytelling to an online experience.

Last, but not least, we know we're just getting started.
