SVCN gave me my foundation in my current career and civil service to my community. At my time at SVCN I worked on various projects and fundraiser. SVCN is truly dedicated to helping nonprofits in our community and working with government entities to get work done. During my time at SVCN I was able to work as a liaison between the City of San Jose and local non-profit in a effort to get thousands of reusable bags to low- income families. Even though I am no longer an intern at SVCN , I use them as a valuable resource with my work on the County's Commission on the Status of Women.

Keep up the great work SVCN!

I was very fortunate and lucky to intern and work at SVCN. SVCN is unlike any other internship and nonprofit experience any student can ever have. Patricia is a great mentor to young adults and really emphasizes on accountability, responsibility, and determination. I know of many interns like myself who are pursuing graduate school, law school, and full-time jobs. I recommend any student to take on the challenge and become an intern at SVCN, because not only is it life-changing, it inspires passion that you've never known you've had!

I served at SVCN as a Public Policy Intern for a year. My year with SVCN was one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had. Under the direction of Patricia Gardner I expanded my knowledge of the policy sector and was able to make a positive impact in my community by the work I supported. I highly recommend SVCN to any student seeking to have a meaningful and empowering internship experience.

Expand it. We need awesome organizations like SVCN.
