Finished your Bronze, Silver, and Gold Levels and ready to give back to the VIP Program?
Apply to our prestigious Platinum Level! Unlike other levels, signing up for VIP Platinum is done via application rather than registration.
Since you’ll be hosting SVB ThinkTanks, we want to make sure you have the minimum communication and leadership skills necessary to make your sessions a good experience for you and the students who attend.
Not every VIP Participant will complete all four levels of the program but many of those who do tell us the Platinum level is the best part of VIP!
The VIP Platinum Level application is released at the beginning of each semester, and the deadline is the second or third Friday of the first month of the term.
All Platinum Participants must apply, complete an interview with the SVB Coordinator and, upon being accepted into the program, attend a Platinum training session.
The SVB Coordinator will work with your availability to schedule the ThinkTanks for the semester. Each Platinum Participant must facilitate two ThinkTanks.
The platinum application is closed now for this semester.
The Application includes sending along your most recent resume and the following questions written in 500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org
In 500 words, answer the following three questions:
1) How have you grown through the VIP?
2) What does it mean to be a mentor?
3) What does completing this level mean to you?
Have questions? Email email@example.com
