  • How does iProbono work?

    Profile
    The first step is to create your profile. The profile will contain your areas of expertise, professional interest, causes and issues that appeal to you, specific professional skills that may be applicable to projects, and languages in which you have a working proficiency.

    Matching
    When you login to iProbono, you will arrive at the Projects page, which will list projects available to you based primarily on whether the projects are offered to professionals such as academics, lawyers and others; whether you have the appropriate language skills for the project; and if the project is based in the same city or town where you are located. In the case of remote projects, they will show up as long as they are based in the same country where you are located.

    Connecting
    Once you find a project that you are interested in, you can register on the project page by clicking Connect. This will enable us to start the process as soon as possible. If the connection is successful, iProbono will get in touch with you and the organisation to initiate the project.
    In the case of a 'Community Action' project, which runs outside of the iProbono website, clicking on 'Connect' will take you to the specific website where the community action will take place.

    Your privacy
    We will never share your email address or contact information with organisations without your express permission.

    Profile
    The first step is to create the organisation profile. The profile is straightforward, containing the basic details of your organisation. iProbono will never share the name or contact details of the staff registering from the organisation without permission

    Matching
    After completing your iProbono profile, you and your colleagues can use it as a one-stop portal to post projects. You can specify exactly what sort of volunteer you are looking for and the skills you require.
    When a project is posted, volunteers who meet the relevant criteria will receive an alert from us, and we will ensure you are connected with the appropriate assistance.

    Connecting
    Once a volunteer registers their interest in your project, we will consider all of the volunteers interested and work to establish a suitable connection as soon as possible. After that, we will put you in touch with the relevant volunteer or volunteers, and your project can go ahead!

    Your privacy
    We will never share your email address or contact information with volunteers without your permission.

    For more information, see our privacy policy.
