In June 2016, Silicon Valley Youth coordinated with the Ravenswood City School District to create a writing contest for East Palo Alto middle school students to encourage enthusiasm in writing. The top winners were awarded prizes at a Ravenswood City School District Board Meeting. Due to positive reception, we have been running this contest every semester.
Silicon Valley Youth is a student-run nonprofit educational and community service organization under the provisions of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Founded in 2015 by Bryan and Benjamin Owens, then students of Gunn High School, SVY is now led by Brandon Fu and Sam Yang. Silicon Valley Youth is an official certifying organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award.
Our mission is to develop the intellectual, moral, civic, and creative capabilities of youth so they can serve and lead our society.
All profits are donated to Ravenswood City School District to support kids in East Palo Alto.
