Launched in 2016, Compass Collective gathers the doers, believers and optimists who are ready to find their own way to make Silicon Valley better for everyone. It was started by Vikki Bowes-Mok and Alyssa Byrkit to help people get involved in our community and is now led by Vikki and her new partner, Alison van Diggelen.
Compass Collective has a grassroots mindset, a high-touch approach and a genuine, long-held belief that we all have an opportunity to make every day better through service to our community.
We believe many people want to get involved and give back but aren’t quite sure how to do it.
So Compass Collective shows people how easy it is. Come join us for a One-Day Plug-In or check out the Field Guide to Community Service. Rally your loved ones for a Family Field Day or join us for a Plug-In Extra.
There’s no obligation or expectation, just a few little seeds planted. It might not grow into anything or it might blossom into something beautiful. What matters most is that people learn there are easy, interesting and meaningful ways to get involved in our community and make a difference.
Ready? Come on, we'll show you the way …
