PreProBono's mission is to expand educational access to law school and to forge a robust public interest network to develop and empower the social justice leaders of tomorrow. This is a member-led organization that helps economically disadvantaged, underrepresented minority, and female pre-law students acquire and utilize law degrees for conscientious careers in law. Our goal is to effect positive and social change and we do this by: offering LSAT prep, admissions workshops, and building a network of public interest minded individuals at low cost or for free.

Prime Produce devised and produced the first “Open Benefit” in 2010. Since then, Open Benefits have been held in New York City, San Francisco, and Honolulu. 100% of net proceeds from each themed event is donated to participating not-for-profits, proportional to their attendance. By bringing together young leadership and support networks in the nonprofit sector, we foster relationship-building within the while simultaneously raising money for worthwhile causes. Whether interactive arts events or winter pool parties, each open benefit is a blend of wholesome fun, novel execution, and unadulterated goodness.

PLAN (Peer Learning Adventure Network) Gaming is for folks who want to learn, practice, and have fun participating in role-playing and tabletop games. Through a social, networked approach with a complete focus in recreational activities we are able to engage and help people who might otherwise not seek such opportunities for cooperative, social, and creative engagement. The healing elements of games are hard coded in the magic that is recreational entertainment, helping people unlock themselves and be the people they would like to be in an environment which passively promotes relaxation and reinvigoration through enjoyable and non-demanding fun.
