Member Duties : Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts is a statewide nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to ensuring that all Pennsylvanians can come to our courts with confidence that they will be heard by qualified, fair, and impartial judges. The PHENND Fellow will expand the capacities for volunteer recruitment and training, as well as identify specific areas that require watchdog involvement, e.g. housing issues, traffic court, or proceedings in criminal courts. Further, the PHENND Fellow will continue to develop the system of implementation for PMC Watches, streamlining the methods for sending volunteers into courtrooms, choosing which court issues they are sent to observe, and coordinating the schedule. All PHENND Fellows will receive extensive professional development as a cohort, in addition to any site specific training. PHENND Fellows participate in monthly diversity/equity training, monthly "Dinners with a Civic Leader,” and additional monthly programming with other VISTA programs.
