The American Planning Association’s Illinois State Chapter is on the look out for a few planning projects to take on through its Pro Bono Program. The Pro Bono Program, originated in 1998, is an outreach service offering initial planning services to communities, neighborhood organizations, and groups that do not have the immediate resources to take on a planning project.
The mission of the Pro-Bono Planning Service Program is to provide planning services on a pro-bono basis by APA membership, to assist eligible non - profit organizations, community groups, service agencies and governmental units in the initiation, organizing and fine tuning of early stage planning projects. The program is not intended to compete with private sector planning services which may be needed to perform and complete any of a full range of planning activities.
The Pro Bono Program needs your help in identifying groups or communities that could use the Pro Bono services. In this hard economic time APA Pro Bono could be a real service for a community without the ready resources to get some planning done. For more information and program ideas please contact Grace Bazylewski at (day)708-895-7174, (evening) 708-895-8542, or gbazylewski at yahoo.com.
Together we can promote sound planning principle and practices especially in areas that would otherwise not have access to them.
