The Viterbi Impact Program (VIP) connects Viterbi students with the LA community.

VIP participants play a vital role in the community as they work as partners with local schools and organizations. VIP volunteers are undergraduate engineering students committed to a semester or more of volunteering in the community and service-learning activities. Volunteer time commitment will vary.

As an initiative lead by Dean Yortsos, the Viterbi School of Engineering is challenged to complete 100,000 hours of service per year through combined efforts from students, staff, and faculty.
