Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents. On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton. As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting. Topics vary monthly and are always interesting! Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons.
Natalie Tung ’18 will join us as our guest speaker on Friday May 4th. Natalie is a senior from Hong Kong with a concentration in English and certificate in Teacher Prep. On campus, she is a member of the Varsity Women’s squash team. In February 2016, Natalie founded a non-profit called HomeWorks Trenton. As a boarding school graduate, she understands how the boarding environment brings about a sense of belonging, promotes shared responsibility, and provides a safe environment where academic excellence is encouraged. She intends to make boarding experience accessible for underprivileged youth in a cost efficient and scalable way through her organization. For her senior thesis, Natalie is constructing an English curriculum that explores trauma through books written by women minority writers. She intends to use the curriculum in her program.
HomeWorks Trenton is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides an after school boarding program to underserved middle and high school girls in Trenton, NJ. We are a supplement to the Trenton public school system, providing the social-emotional and academic enrichment opportunities of a traditional boarding school without the socio-economic limitations. Our students attend public school during the day and come to HomeWorks once they are dismissed. Here, they receive mentorship and strong academic support, participate in community-oriented activities, and stay overnight in a stable home environment. They board from Sunday nights till Friday mornings so they can re-connect with their families on the weekends. HomeWorks provides underserved students with opportunities that are typically found outside of their urban communities. We are a local solution to a local problem.
Please join us. As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion!
Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea. [**Wine/beer offered a la carte - select Enhanced Lunch Ticket**]
