Family, Service, and Second Chances

According to Adam Svet, there is nothing sweeter than spending time with his family. “I have an incredible wife. She and I are blessed to have a wonderful daughter. They are the center of my universe,” related Adam. The family has lived in Rancho Santa Fe for three years, and they love the area’s open spaces, surrounding community, and proximity to San Diego’s beautiful beaches. Adam, a Workforce Solutions executive, feels very fortunate to live close to his parents, who are also Rancho Santa Fe residents.

He is a member of the board of Second Chance, an organization that creates opportunities for people to transform their own lives through programs that provide job readiness and life skills training, job placement, behavioral health and prisoner re-entry services, relapse prevention and sober living housing for adults and youth in need. As stated by Adam, the organization fosters behavioral changes that promote personal responsibility, healthy relationships, and positive contributions to society. “As a board member, I contribute perspective when appropriate and do my best to evangelize on behalf of the organization. I believe that given the right training and circumstances, people will set themselves onto a better path. Second Chance helps make this happen for many people,” revealed Adam. He encourages those who would like to support Second Chance to visit and learn more about the upcoming benefit featuring Piper Kerman of Orange is the New Black fame. The event will take place Oct. 17 at Qualcomm Hall.

When asked about what he would like to see happen in the future for Second Chance, Adam has a vision for growth and development. “I would like to develop a mixed-use facility for Second Chance that would house a training center, apartment housing, and retail space,” he stated.

Adam is often out and about in the local community and enjoys spending time at the beach in Del Mar and the Pony Room of Rancho Valencia. An avid reader, Adam is also extremely fond of being at home immersed in a good book or spending quality time with his wife and daughter.
