PRoBono 2020

Most college students have pulled all-nighters before exams or final presentations, but this is unlike any other late night cram session.

Every year, Boston University students gather in the College of Communications for PRoBono, PRLab’s annual overnight hack-a-thon styled communications marathon where students work overnight to develop, design, and create tangible deliverables for deserving non-profit organizations.

Due to the pandemic, we will not be able to gather together in Boston, but we are so excited to have our fantastic volunteers participate virtually through the night. There will be exciting games, PR celebrity appearances, fantastic prizes, and much more.

By volunteering virtually, you can be wherever you want in whatever you want. Want to volunteer from your bed in your PJs? Go for it. Want to write a press release from the couch in a full suit? You can do that! Want to design a social media campaign from the kitchen while eating fruit snacks? Absolutely!

We understand that virtual volunteering poses different challenges than previous years so, in order to combat Zoom fatigue, we will be offering a break in the middle of the event to rest your eyes and take a nap; something never offered at PRoBono before! Please refer to the schedule below for more information.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted our plans from an in-person, all-night marathon, our newly developed virtual PRoBono has opened the door to fantastic non-profits around the globe.

We may be apart right now, but we can still be connected during PRoBono 2020. After all, our goal still stands: to help out fantastic non-profit organizations in the process of gaining PR experience.
