Princeton AlumniCorps Seeks Volunteers in Marketing, Communications, Project Management

Princeton AlumniCorps (formerly Princeton Project 55) is an independent, alumni-led, nonprofit organization that engages alumni in significant public interest initiatives. Its new Community Volunteers program seeks to connect Princeton alumni from the classes in the '60s, '70s, and '80s to civic engagement opportunities in the nonprofit sector. Locally, Community Volunteers is organizing pro bono working groups of Princeton alumni to assist nonprofit organizations with substantive short-term projects not related to fundraising. The first of many opportunities is below.

Healthcare and Domestic Violence Initiative
