Valley Improvement Projects: A project of Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs (SEE)

            Valley Improvement Projects’ (V.I.P.) mission is to improve the quality of life of under-represented and marginalized residents of California’s Central Valley, by promoting social and environmental issues through youth outreach, education, technology, and art.  Our organization values the rights to be free from environmental destruction and access to clean air, water, land, and food for all, just as we believe that public policy should be shaped by the people it directly affects.

            V.I.P. utilizes technology, social media and the arts to conduct outreach in our local parks, churches, and community centers which has allowed us to recruit interested volunteers and supporters, especially youth.  We inform through the use of educational materials, workshops, and discussions held in our local San Joaquin Valley neighborhoods, which are under-represented communities.

            Your donation will be used for one or multiple ongoing activities that V.I.P. has committed to, they include but are not limited to the following:

  • Rent community centers to hold bilingual workshops and educational trainings on environmental/social justice issues.
  • Hold workshops and trainings on bike repair, the benefits of biking, local polluters and civic engagement.
  • Attend meetings/protests/conferences/workshops in solidarity with organizations that share the values stated in our mission statement.
  • Gain technical/expert support.
  • Create and distribute educational materials concerning local environmental/social justice issues.
  • Provide stipend to employ part-time advocates.

Valley Improvement Projects is a project of Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit.  Please make checks payable to SEE/Valley Improvement Projects.  If you are donating by credit card, please note that Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs, or a variation of SEE, will show up on your credit card statement.  Your donation is tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
