Student volunteer spotlight: Why we volunteer
VLB student volunteers Adil Khoso and Owen Mattox
Adil Khoso
“If passion to forward humanity was ever encapsulated into an organization, VLB would be it. The dedicated people there have reflected my passion to change the world one person at a time. By joining VLB and promulgating their cause, you help establish a sense of oneness within your community.”
Owen Mattox
"I decided to volunteer because I have always been passionate about serving those who are experiencing hardship. Volunteering with VLB instills in each volunteer a sense of humility while also offering prospective attorneys like myself opportunities to see what it is like to deal with clients."
