Now in its eighth year, the Dana Juett Leadership Residency was created by SVP Dallas to encourage those in their 20s to get engaged in philanthropic work much earlier in their careers.
The residency was named in honor of SVP Dallas partner and philanthropic leader William Dana Juett, who advocated to get young professionals engaged in philanthropic and civic activities.
SVP Dallas said that being accepted into the program gives young professionals key insights into understanding the root causes of systemic, social, and economic injustice.
Impact via social innovation is the program’s focus. Residents will hear from some of the area’s most accomplished leaders, and they will gain experience by bringing their expertise and talents to the service of local for-profit-for-good companies, government programs, and nonprofits.
Get on the list.
