We are proud to welcome three new Partners to our Board of Directors! The Board provides leadership for SVP’s mission to mobilize the time, money, and influence of our Partnership for investment in our community.

Each of these Partners brings specific skills that lend to this charge, as well as passion for our current goal of ensuring that all children—regardless of ethnicity, wealth, religion, gender, or zip code—have access to high-quality, culturally-relevant early learning experiences.
