About SMART

SMART (Schools, Mentoring and Resource Team, Inc.) champions education equity by supporting students in overcoming systemic barriers on their journey to a college degree. We envision a community with equitable pathways to college graduation for every student in San Francisco. SMART provides a unique twelve-year continuum of support that starts in 4th grade and extends through college, including school support, after-school enrichment, summer programming, college prep, and college persistence support. As a result, SMART Scholars are more than four times more likely to graduate college when compared to their peers. Furthermore, while only 21% of low-income students who enter college will graduate within six years, SMART Scholars are currently persisting at a rate of more than 80%.

SMART’s Values:

  • Community: We build a community that celebrates diversity, thrives on teamwork, and appreciates everyone’s contributions. Through community, we are stronger.
  • Equity: We are committed to systems and processes that are just, fair, and inclusive, enabling all people the opportunity to belong, participate, and reach their full potential.
  • Empowerment: We believe the path to empowerment and self-advocacy is through the encouragement, support, and guidance of those around us.
  • Learning: We believe education and life-long learning enhance our understanding of our world, our place within it, and provide the tools to change it. Through embracing challenges and learning opportunities, we make progress.
  • Joy: We center joy in our community and practice. We view joy as an act of liberation, which unleashes creativity, strengthens relationships, and propels the work that we do.
