Why It Matters

When you look around your community, what do you see?

Chances are you see some major issues—schools struggling to make the grade. Teachers without access to basic resources and supplies. Astronomical student dropout rates. And it has gone on far too long.

At SVP Sacramento, all we see is potential.

These problems aren’t going to solve themselves. There are no easy answers. And throwing money at them isn’t going to make them go away. Clearly, no single person, or organization, has the solution.

But what if every single person steps up to the plate?

What happens if you take the potential of every individual, connect him or her directly to the people working on the issues they are passionate about, and challenge them to make a difference?

At SVP Sacramento we’ve seen what happens, and the results are transformational.

It starts with one person ready to engage in the hard work of change. That one person joins many people. Many people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with local nonprofits, taking their vital work – for kids, for families, for the environment – to the next level. Together they help build communities able to solve our most entrenched education problems.
