Breaktime Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Breaktime and we hope that you join us in ensuring that every young person gets Breaktime chance to work with dignity, build stability in their lives, and serve their communities. Our co-founders, Connor Schoen and Tony Shu, met Breaktime undergraduate students at Harvard while working at the Y2Y Shelter for young adults experiencing homelessness. We believe in the power and potential of all young people to support their communities and believe that the opportunity to give back to others is just as transformative as the job itself.

Through the Double Impact Initiative, we learned that empowering young adults to serve their own communities is critical in fostering purpose, dignity, and hope. I didn't think I'd make it past 20. Gary Pforzheimer President of PG Calc, Former Chair of the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning now CGP.

"Now I go to the same streets I used to get in trouble on and help people advance to where I am now. We recruit young adults from other nonprofits providing transitional housing and case management, and following two weeks of cohort-based training, we co-fund the wages for Associates to work at local nonprofits and community organizations for three months.

Our Youth Leadership Board, composed of 10 young adults, has lived experiences of homelessness, and frequently advises Breaktime's programming, policies, and strategic plan. From developing the Breaktime Cafe to growing our Double Impact Initiative during the pandemic, our team has remained relentlessly committed to launching the careers of young adults experiencing homelessness. Ultimately, the Double Impact Initiative accomplishes two goals: launching the careers of young adults experiencing homelessness and empowering them through purposeful transitional employment that promotes the health and wellbeing of their communities.

Breaktime continues to evolve and grow. Purposeful Transitional Employment Breaktime Associates are equipped with the job skills, transitional employment experience, and wages and savings they need for long-term stability and success.


Breaktime Purposeful transitional employment helps young adults experiencing homelessness overcome employment obstacles through living-wage Breaktime that offer stability, advance professional skills, and build confidence.

Transitional employment provides a sustainable framework for achieving stable employment through professional development within a supportive environment. While programs that only include foundational job training exist, many young adults experiencing homelessness remain unemployed months and even years after completing them.
