"I don’t think we’d be where we are today [without SVP]. The facilitation value SVP provided us helped to cut our learning curve in half.
The biggest thing that points to the success of our partnership is that we are now using these tools we’ve developed to move forward. This translates to our ability to increase our impact specifically with the youth we serve."
- Ben McCue, Executive Director, Outdoor Outreach
