We know that hearing "pro bono" can be intimidating. We want to make sure you're set up for success in doing
pro bono and skills-based volunteering - whether as a nonprofit or corporation - especially with Global Pro Bono
Week (Oct 20-26) just around the corner.

HandsOn Twin Cities is rolling out a new Pro Bono Advisory Program for each of its stakeholders, helping their nonprofit
partners develop a scope of work and recruit pro bono volunteers and their corporate partners to gain leadership buy-in
and to tailor a pro bono program that aligns with their company values. For this special CVC event, we will share about
the global pro bono landscape, the guiding principles of HOTC's Pro Bono Advisory Program, and help you get your pro
bono feet wet by diving into the development of your very own scope of work.
