When I was in high school, I coordinated a back-pack drive for the Elementary Program with IVYP. In my professional career, I coordinated a pen-pal program with the elderly clients I worked with and the elementary-aged students at IVYP. The IVYP staff are dedicated, trustworthy, and follow-through. They make a positive impact on the Isla Vista Community every single day.
