CLOSING THE OPPORTUNITY GAP


 

The Opportunity Gap

Silicon Valley is a place of growth, innovation, and optimism - but many of our young people do not have access to its opportunities.

 

40% of low income students don't graduate from high school

They lose 2 months of reading proficiency every summer

70% of students in our community are not reading at grade level

 

our mission

Our mission is to provide the low-income youth of our community with the opportunities they need to graduate ready to succeed in college or career.

OUR Results

  • 1,800 students attend our programs every year.

  • Students at our school sites receive 720 hours of expanded learning time instruction per year. That's the equivalent of 100 extra school days.

  • 90% of alumni who attended our school sites go on to graduate from high school. 

  • 90% of students in our Summer Academy program maintained their reading proficiency, and 25% of these students actually increased in proficiency.
