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.

The Viterbi Impact Program is not currently accepting applications. The Fall 2022 application will open in early August.
