Big Dreams that Break barriers
Intellectually curious and ready to work hard, Breakthrough Silicon Valley students love learning. They are enthusiastic young people with big dreams, but they also face tremendous obstacles.
Often among the first generation in their families to attend college, our students navigate a world in which racial stereotypes, economic hardships, and under-resourced schools impact each day.
Our students are determined to break through barriers and the magnitude of their accomplishments extends far beyond high school and college success alone. As they become leaders and scholars, they model a new standard among their peers and in their communities.
