Who are they and what do they do?
The Education Team (aka the E-Team) pools the vast experiences, connections, and resources of our team members to meet the educational needs of our Partners and our community. Since SVP is known for its commitment to social innovation, our education events often look at old issues through a new lens. We also pride ourselves on our commitment to cross-sector collaboration as evidenced by our audiences and speakers alike.
Past topics have ranged from Immigrants & Refugees to Innovation in Mental Health Care, and from Prisoner Re-Entry to Urban Farming. We also explore issues specific to philanthropy each year for the benefit of our Partners and prospective partners alike.
What do I need to know in order to join the E-Team?
The E-Team meets periodically to plan events. There are no prerequisites other than a willingness to suggest speakers and topics, to provide contact information, and to brainstorm with other Partners about the best approaches for each event.
