BOC Member & Business Community Representative
Adolfo Mercado heads Breakthrough Sacramento, a public-private partnership that provides college-preparatory after-school programming to academically motivated students. In addition, the project maintains a teacher-training program for high-school and college students. The 39-year-old Mercado, a City Farms resident and Christian Brothers High School grad, works out of an office at Sacramento Country Day School in Sierra Oaks. He began this post in May 2005, and Breakthrough Sacramento has operated since summer 1994.
Education truly transforms individuals, families, and communities with teachers as catalyst or agents of change, and Mercado finds it exciting to be a part of this.
