Silicon Valley Children’s Fund
Every week, we’ll be highlighting one of our awesome business leaders to provide you some good insights on their business and the services they provide.
What services do you provide?
We offer a staffing model to support in part time, temporary and full time openings at your company. Our youth are prepared with professional development training and case management. We do all the things that any other staffing companies do for a much lower price and in service of uplifting and empowering the most at-risk youth in our community. We also offer a Corporate Social Responsibility opportunity to host one of our foster youth in a paid summer internship at your company (both high school and college candidates) where they are able to secure professional experience and mentoring to build their resumes and outlook in life. We’re all about jobs and opportunity for the population we serve – Santa Clara County’s foster youth.
What is an overview of your business model?
We are the ‘one stop shop’ for foster youth success in employment (jobs, internships, training and more) and educational support (mentoring, tutoring, scholarships). We are committed to supporting all foster youth in Santa Clara County (ages 14-24) with our services for at least 10 years ensuring they are able to thrive in Silicon Valley. Our partnerships with business leaders of the valley is integral to what we do to improve the life outcomes of these youth.
Why are you a member of MyProGroup?
We are members of MyProGroup to help identify synergies and opportunities for our youth and get to know good business leaders on a more intimate level. Our work is all about relationships (or is that ‘life’ in general)?!
How has MyProGroup helped your business?
MyProGroup has helped me secure jobs, internships and amazing connections to other community partners – plus inspirational speakers for the students of our STEM and professional development program. The group has donated money to our cause as well!
