Common Good Collaborative
In June 2008, ALF-Silicon Valley and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation announced a partnership to create a Common Good Collaborative in Silicon Valley. Through the Common Good Collaborative, and in partnership with other community organizations, ALF sponsored a series of community dialogues, forums and the "Uncommon Exchange" conversation series to address pressing societal issues, explore principles of the common good and develop a framework for setting priorities in the community.
20th Anniversary Gala
On Tuesday, March 10, 2009, ALF celebrated 20 years of servant leadership in Silicon Valley with a gala celebration at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. The 20th Anniversary Gala Committee, led by co-chairs Kathy Meier (Class IX) and Greg Jamison (Class XII), hosted an unforgettable and untraditional night, podium-free and filled with fun and fellowship.
