Our Work

Connect. Inspire. Act.

The Great Valley Center provides planning, problem-solving and information to activate civic participation, with programs in energy, social equity and digital literacy.  We work on multiple fronts engaging and informing citizens, training local leaders, and delivering programs that respond directly to critical gaps in the Valley’s communities. Through our work, we help Valley residents get informed, get involved, and get excited about the future.
