Pro Bono Week 2018 Spotlight: The Skilled Volunteers Behind Pro Bono 

This week, social good organizations across four continents will receive pro bono services during Pro Bono Week. This annual celebration of the pro bono ethic honors thousands of professionals who volunteer their skills and expertise to support nonprofits all around the world. Pro Bono Week reminds us how crucial and important skilled volunteers are in helping to build the capacity of the social sector. By donating their time and expertise, pro bono volunteers have the chance to give back, connect with their communities, and deepen their skillsets. 

In this issue, we take a look at the volunteer experience—from how to make pro bono service an attractive and exciting opportunity for employees to one employee’s motivation for volunteering her skills.
