Kenneth Garrett Senior Site Director
Kenneth Garret currently serves as the Senior Site Director for Breakthroughs Miami Country Day Site. He’s been involved with Breakthrough since 2013 and started his Breakthrough Journey as a volunteer. He graduated from Barry University with his degree in Business Administration but chose to work in the world of nonprofit to help lead change for students that come from under-resourced communities. The reason he chose Breakthrough is that he believes in the mission and has seen the benefits of the work from the view of a volunteer and an administrator. By giving students the resources Miami Country Day offers, we are working together to close the achievement gap.
I had no idea how deeply I would be affected by all these children and how much they would inspire me every day. It’s been such a fantastic ride to see this program go from a handful of students who wanted to have a business club to more than 200 who have participated in one of our programs. I can’t wait to see where this year will lead!
