To leverage Silicon Valley’s regional talent and sources of innovation from the private sector, non profits and universities to work with local government to advance key strategic objectives:
- Maximize resources
- Enhance the effectiveness of service delivery to the public
- Create a replicable model that can be implemented across Silicon Valley
Silicon Valley Talent Partnership provides a unique opportunity that offers tangible benefits to all stakeholders.
Local Governments: At a time when resources are extremely constrained, this partnership offers local governments access to private sector talent, advanced technologies, and innovative problem solving approaches.
Universities: SVTP offers students hands on opportunities in the creation of private, public partnership that benefits their community. The experience and network earned from a 3-9 month internship will benefit the students in gaining practical experience and expanding their professional network.
Companies: SVTP provides companies in Silicon Valley a powerful professional development and employee engagement tool. Employees gain new skills, insights and perspectives from their experiences addressing public sector challenges while networking with like-minded professionals in other companies. These kinds of opportunities can also enhance employee attraction and retention.
Volunteers: SVTP offers volunteers the chance to utilize their skills and experience on critical civic projects that go beyond the typical menu of volunteer opportunities. In addition, SVTP provides networking and learning opportunities for both the volunteers and city employees.
The Community: The entire community ultimately benefits from the enhanced government operations and services developed through these partnerships.
