Program Overview

  • Organizations submit projects that meet our program guidelines
  • Each Pro Bono Consultant is interviewed to verify experience and interests
  • Pro Bono Consultant selects a project and a meeting is arranged to scope out project parameters and finalize choice to proceed or not
  • During the project, Volunteer Center remains in contact, working with the consultant and the organization to ensure a successful completion
  • At the project’s conclusion, the Pro Bono Consultant and organization constructively evaluate the results
  • Projects may lead to a continued relationship between the consultant and the organization – or this may be a one-time project – it’s up to you
