Ways to Volunteer: Organizations

Connect Your Workplace with VIP

Whether you’re a pro bono coordinator with a lot on your plate, or at an organization without designated pro bono leads, we’re here to help you connect your colleagues with a meaningful pro bono experience.

Schedule a Visit From VIP

If you’re eager to learn more about VIP before jumping in, schedule a VIP Roadshow at your workplace!

At these one-hour “lunch-and-learn” events, VIP staff members share a brief presentation about the VIP model and its benefits, leaving plenty of time for informal discussion with attendees.

We’ll tailor our presentation to suit your organization and its strengths.

Set up a pro bono practice group

If your organization already boasts a team of VIP volunteers, why not organize a Pro Bono Practice Group?

Not only do these periodic (usually monthly or bi-monthly) in-house meetings foster a sense of community among volunteers, they also allow participants to share case stories, troubleshoot substantive issues, and seek guidance from a VIP staff member.

Email Us About a Practice Group

Pepper's homeownership practice group is completely dedicated to this work, and meets once a month to review cases and brainstorm, thereby improving our efficiency and effectiveness.

Other Ways to Get Involved

There are plenty of other ways for your organization to get involved, including by hosting a training or clinic, or by financially supporting VIP – which helps expand access to justice for low-income Philadelphians facing critical legal issues and has benefits designed to complement your workplace’s strategic marketing objectives.

To learn more about partnering with VIP, please contact Joe B. Durkin, Program Coordinator.
