Volunteer Appreciation Month is around the corner. What makes SVP unique is our strategic, high-impact, skills-based volunteering alongside our nonprofit Investees, helping them build capacity and scale to serve more opportunity youth. We celebrate SVP's over 100 investing Partners who volunteer their skills, time and expertise with our Investees. SVP Partners, your volunteerism and dedication have a real impact! Thank you!
