Why It Matters

When you look around your community, what do you see?

Chances are, you see schools struggling to make the grade. Youth out of work. Families unable to afford college. Resource strapped nonprofits.

At SVP, all we see is potential.

There is indeed a chasm between the challenges we face today and the scale at which we are engaging those challenges. These problems aren’t going to solve themselves. There are no easy answers, and no single individual has the solution.

But, what happens if you take the potential of many skilled individuals, connect them directly to the organizations working on the issues they are passionate about, and build a community around making a difference?

At SVP Boston, we’ve seen the results, and they are transformational.

It starts with one person ready to engage in the hard work of change. That one person joins many people. Many people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with local nonprofits, taking their vital work to the next level. Together they help build communities able to solve our most entrenched social problems.
