Who are they and what do they do?
Alternately quarterbacks and counsellors, Lead Partners spearhead SVP’s engagements with our Investees. The Lead Partner serves as a sounding board for the Investee’s executive director as they determine how SVP can best help strengthen their capacity. Lead Partners often develop trusting, intensely personal relationships with these Investees. Along the way, Lead Partners are never alone. They are supported by both SVP staff and by fellow Lead Partners. Lead Partners benefit from meetings with other Lead Partners (both former and current) where they share lessons learned and brainstorm about impending challenges.
What do I need to know in order to become a Lead Partner?
Lead Partners tend to be great listeners and collaborative by nature. If you are interested in being a Lead Partner, you will need to sign up for a training session. Please contact SVP Staff to learn more.
