Program areas at Breakthrough Silicon Valley

High school program - in spring 2022, 72 btsv students graduated high school. 93% enrolled into four-year universities, and the remainder enrolled in community colleges or trade school. In the 2021-2022 academic year, btsv's college pathways initiative, a seventh year of programming for btsv graduates in their first year of college, was launched. These students were paired with 22 peer monitors, $25,000 in microgrants was distributed, and planning is underway for an inaugural three-day retreat for rising college freshmen.
Middle school summer program - in summer 2021, btsv delivered a four-week program for btsv's rising 7th, 8th, and 9th graders. Some 7th and 8th grade families opted into a fully in-person program, while our other middle schoolers and 9th graders attended classes virtually, with optional in-person community-building days taking place once per week. Btsv served 200+ students, taught by 39 teaching fellows, providing instruction in math, literature, science (middle school), and "high school prep" (9th grade).
Middle school year-round program - btsv adapted to meet a surge in demand for tutoring (provided in-person and virtually in fy2022), and btsv grew tutoring by over 20% over the prior year. Btsv has also adapted the content of tutoring to include not just academic subjects, but skills like organization, prioritization, and study skills.which are needed even more in distance learning.diversity, equity, and inclusion (dei) were priorities for btsv in fy2022. Btsv engaged a dei facilitator to lead trainings with staff and board and to support the creation of an organization-wide set of guiding principles for btsv's dei work. Btsv also increased dei]focused training in summer teaching fellows.
