Our Dual Mission

  • Breakthrough Silicon Valley prepares motivated students with limited educational opportunities for success in rigorous college-preparatory high school programs and entry into four-year colleges.

  • Breakthrough Silicon Valley also prepares outstanding high school and college students to enter careers in education.

Every day in Silicon Valley, a quiet tragedy unfolds. Motivated young people filled with promise fall through the cracks. In neighborhoods impacted by poverty, gangs, and under-resourced schools — instead of heading to college, their options are limited by circumstances beyond their control. Breakthrough Silicon Valley is committed to these kids — to rewriting their stories and transforming their futures.
