Silicon Valley Career Pathways (SVCP) is Northern California’s largest network of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and career programs. SVCP creatively leveraged two major multi-million-dollar grants with a common purpose of creating STEM opportunities for underrepresented populations.
SVCP’s outcomes were recently recognized by the Community College Futures Assembly receiving the 2019 National Bellwether Award in the Planning, Governance, and Finance category.
MAPin is the SVCP’s regional student support program, which promotes career and personal success for students at all levels. This program helps today’s students become tomorrow’s workforce through college awareness and preparation, career coaching and personality assessments, career readiness workshops, and work-based learning opportunities. MAPin delivers student centered wrap-around services, which is the foundation for academic, personal, and professional success.
MAPin was recently recognized by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Region 8 as the Partner in Educational Excellence at their 2019 awards ceremony.
