Launched by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, along with the City of San Jose, and endorsed by the Cities Association of Santa Clara County, 1000 Hearts for 1000 Minds endeavors to narrow the achievement gap in Silicon Valley by leveraging the creative energy of our workforce and residents - the world's most innovative - to support our students who are struggling most in the core areas of literacy, math and science.
