A key element of SVP's systems change strategy is participating in cross-sector partnerships with other organizations that are working to close the opportunity and race equity gap in Connecticut.  We currently partner with Businesses, Educational Institutions, Nonprofits, Community Foundations and other Philanthropic Organizations, Workforce Development Boards, and State Government.  


The primary goal of the Governor’s Workforce Council is to ensure that Connecticut maintains the most accessible, equitable, aligned and high-quality workforce pipeline in the country, ensuring our workforce remains agile through curricula and programming that is responsive to the needs of the 21st century economy.

A team of 14 SVP Partners has worked over the past year on a comprehensive workforce strategy for Connecticut in collaboration with numerous business, education, government, and nonprofit leaders.


McKinsey has partnered with Social Venture Partners CT to support our work in Early Childhood Education and Minority Business Development.

Founded in 2011, the Collaborative worked toward the creation of an Office of Early Childhood (OEC) at the state level that merges state agencies serving young children and their families to better integrate systems and services. In 2013, the Office of Early Childhood was created via executive order, and in response, the mission of the Collaborative expanded and became more robust: To bring the collective voice and resources of philanthropy to build and sustain a comprehensive early childhood system that works for all children, families, communities and the workforce in Connecticut.
