Our mission is to make Silicon Valley the leader in academically prepared students. We accomplish this by leveraging partnerships and resources for public education so that all students can realize their full potential. Partnerships are an instrumental part of how we operate. Our goal is to pursue and solidify effective partnerships with corporations, foundations, other non-profits and schools to ensure we can provide the necessary resources for all students.
Meeting student's educational needs is a complex and challenging task that no one institution can effectively accomplish on its own. Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) believes that there are many organizations that can collaborate to effect change. By finding ways to compliment each other's current operations, we can build a stronger and more unified effort while reducing the barriers to progress.
To develop and enhance our partnerships, we are scheduling partnership/networking meetings which will primarily serve two purposes: 1) Understanding SVEF's mission, strategy, programs and services, and where we see potential opportunities and, 2) Providing an opportunity to network and identify potential areas for collaboration.
We want to ensure that we have meaningful and rich dialogue at each meeting. So, we are limiting the number of participants to a maximum of twenty at each meeting. The schedule for the meeting dates for 2013 will be determined soon. If you are interested in attending, please contact Jennifer Li at email@example.com.
