Not only is VIA focused on Connecting our members, but we also work hard to support the educational needs of SCV employers Рby providing pertinent educational opportunities to the emerging and existing workforce.

These programs may complement or be in addition to programs currently offered by standard educational institutions.

VIA’s focus is both on helping to provide resources and opportunities for our Members to advance their knowledge, as well as helping to prepare the future workforce of the Santa Clarita Valley.


VIA Connecting to Success is a high impact workforce preparation program in a business conference format. Over 100 volunteer mentors from the business community lead students through role-playing, case studies, group discussions, and individual assessments to build workplace professionalism, and the ability to influence others as responsible adults.

Beginning with a few hundred students from Valencia High School, Connecting to Success has grown into a program that is replicated in communities across the nation.
