SVCN provided the stepping stone I needed to transition away from Santa Clara University and into my career in public service. This organization is run by highly dedicated professionals in the health and human services sector who advocate tirelessly for their clients. My internship experience was not only a great networking opportunity, where I was introduced to elected officials and various leaders in the nonprofit sector, but also a great source of work experience, where I was trusted to tackle my own projects and serve on the front lines of nonprofit advocacy (including speaking in before the San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed!).
