Other Princeton Affiliates
In addition to the Young Alumni, Princeton Women's Network, and the Alumni Schools Committee, there are other Princeton alumni organizations in Northern California.
Princeton Prize in Race Relations
The goal of the Princeton Prize is "to promote harmony, understanding, and respect among people of different races by identifying and recognizing high school age students whose efforts have had a significant, positive effect on race relations in their schools or communities". The prize presents awards annually to high school students helping to promote race relations. Volunteers are needed to help plan the awards ceremony, typically taking place in the Spring, or to help with outreach efforts. To learn more about the Prize, or become involved in Northern California, please visit the website, or contact John Jenkins '97 at jjenkins [at] alumni.princeton.edu.
Princeton AlumniCorps (Formerly Project 55) places recent Princeton graduates into paid fellowship and internship programs in the Bay Area as well as around the country. It inspires, enables and promotes the creation of public interest initiatives, and participation in them, by Princeton alumni of all ages (whether as individuals, or in class and other common-interest affiliations), and then helps to grow and sustain them. Since its inception in 1989, this Fellowship Program has partnered with more than 500 nonprofit organizations to place more than 1,300 Princetonians in paid public interest positions around the country. Princeton AlumniCorps is currently working to develop a new initiative focused on providing civic engagement opportunities for Princeton alumni considering mid-career transitions. In Northern California, they are looking for help with mentoring fellows as well as helping to organize their events.
