We invite you to nominate yourself or someone else to be a part of centering SVP's work more deeply in communities we serve, as well as enjoying the benefits of being an SVP Partner.

An ideal Community Partner would bring a fresh voice to the SVP Partnership through their diverse lived experiences. Additionally, a successful Community Partner has skills needed for nonprofit capacity building projects (i.e. program evaluation, fund and/or business development, nonprofit leadership, strategic planning, etc.).

Looking for a new medium to explore issues of racial equity and social justice? Watch Netflix's four-part miniseries "When They See Us."   It chronicles the important and controversial case of five teenagers of color, labeled the Central Park Five, who were convicted of a 1989 rape they did not commit.
