Princeton University Month of Service 2018

Princeton University Month of Service

January 2018

The Pace Center for Civic Engagement invites Princeton University staff, faculty, students and alumni to come together for Month of Service 2018. Month of Service is designed to create space for all members of the Princeton University community to celebrate and showcase the many ways we work with communities to make a meaningful and positive impact. 

From January 2, 2018 through February 2, 2018, staff, faculty, students and alumni can serve in the community, build skills, knowledge and understanding, and reflect together about the impact of service and civic engagement. 

Learn more about the Month of Service on the Pace website, here

As part of the activities, PA3 will be organizing a used computer collection drive to support TDI Connect, which provides refurbished computers to students and adults in Trenton. See the community service tab on our website, linked here, for dropoff locations and to learn more about the drive and how you can get involved. PA3 is also organizing volunteers for multiple events with TDI Connect all month. Learn more about those here.
