SVP is bold and bright—and we look a little bit different in each community. We invite you to get engaged in a personal way as you explore this website by selecting your own colors!
When you look around the Twin Cities, what do you see? Chances are you see schools struggling to make the grade, unemployed youth, homeless youth disconnected from school, bright students with major barriers to higher education, teens who want a better life but don’t know how to get there, and resource-strapped nonprofits.
These problems aren’t going to solve themselves. There are no easy answers, and no single person 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 Social Venture Partners we’ve seen the results, and they are transformational!
Join our community of Partners and help us solve our most entrenched social problems! Our commitment to elevating underserved teens is driven by the combination of a compelling need and a relative lack of resources committed by the philanthropic community.
