Neighborhood Prosperity Initiative
As a part of Santa Clara's larger Thriving Neighbors Initiative, the Neighborhood Prosperity Initiative connects you and the knowledge you gain in the classroom with a community in need.
The Neighborhood Prosperity Initiative has two goals for you:
Hands on, community-based learning and collaboration with community partners
Use skills acquired in accounting, marketing, and management courses to contribute to prosperity in low income neighborhoods.Through these experiences you will develop new perspectives on social justice and community engagement, and how you can incorporate these into your life during and after your SCU program.
Get involved with NPI
Use skills acquired in accounting, marketing, and management courses to contribute to prosperity in local low income neighborhoods.
