Our Impact and Success

If you believe in the power of education, 10,000 Degrees is one of the best investments you can make. A college degree breaks the cycle of poverty for generations to come.

Now serving students in eight San Francisco Bay Area counties, we are working every day to reach more students with our proven programs.

Our Vision

We envision a world where all students, regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic background will have the full range of educational opportunities, support, and resources to realize their full potential.

“I wanted to give up so many times, but my 10,000 Degrees Fellow wouldn’t let me. I didn’t have a supportive family growing up. So when I went to office hours feeling defeated my 10,000 Degrees Fellow would welcome me by checking in with me and allow me to vent and as a result I felt a sense of family.”
