The VIA BASH event will return on Friday, October 26 at the Hyatt Regency Valencia.  

Connecting to Success

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.

Connecting to Success was developed in the Santa Clarita Valley through the partnership of the Valley Industryl Association of Santa Clarita (VIA) and Junior Achievement of Southern California (JA). From 2003 - 2008, VIA and JA partnered to deliver this unique and innovative program to high school juniors in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Since 2009, the VIA Foundation and the Valley Industry Association have been producting, planning, and funding the project in its entirety. 

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. Seven high schools and nearly 2,000 students participated in the 2012 Connecting to Success in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Participating High Schools in 2012:

  • William S. Hart
  • Bowman
  • Golden Valley
  • Saugus
  • Valencia


    West Ranch
  • Academy of the Canyons

What are the most pressing issues facing California employers? 
According to a recent Business Roundtable, rapid advances in technology, green issues and green compliance, employee recruitment and development and continuing education needs for the existing and emerging workforces are making it more and more difficult for California companies to keep a competitive edge.


How are we going to solve these issues?  The Valley Industry Association wants to help you prosper in today’s business environment.    

VIA Rocks

The Valley Industrial Association has been the voice of business and industry in the Santa Clarita Valley for nearly 30 years.  VIA Rocks! connects local business people with each other, promotes key business-to-business and business-to-consumer initiatives, and provides sponsorship opportunities and exposure.  Don’t miss it!

VIA Rocks! is based on the old folk tale, “Stone Soup.”  The story of “Stone Soup” has become a metaphor for cooperation and collaboration assimilating across many cultures and situations. Bringing that same premise to the local business community, VIA Rocks! will promote the health and success of business and industry in the SCV.

VIA Rocks! is open to the public. VIA members, business and networking group members, employees, residents, and all others are encouraged to attend this event for the purpose of making connections and exchanging business cards.
