Tutors Needed in Trenton

TUTORS NEEDED FOR PRINCETON-BLAIRSTOWN PROGRAM IN TRENTON, NJ

Weekly tutors are needed for the Princeton-Blairstown Center’s (PBC) Leaders of Tomorrow Program at Trenton Central High-West Campus in Trenton, NJ.  Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Volunteer for one or more days to tutor, mentor and empower underserved freshmen who need help with core subjects (English, Math, Science, History).  Application, fingerprinting and orientation required prior to working with students. For more information contact Jessica Keels, LSW, Site Coordinator at jkeels@princetonblairstown.org.

PBC was founded in 1908 by a group of Princeton University undergraduates and alumni. They joined together to take 30 impoverished boys from Philadelphia to a two week summer program.  While much has changed over our 106 year history, we remain committed to serving some of our region’s most at-risk youth.  Today PBC’s mission is to transform the lives of vulnerable young people, through integrated experiential and adventure-based programming in schools and at our outdoor Blairstown Campus.  Our School-Based programs focus on dropout prevention, leadership and social emotional learning skills.

Both internships support non-profits in the local Princeton area, and are BRAND NEW for the Summer of 2014.  Without the support from PA3, they would not exist.  Please click here to find out more about the organizations and internships.

Community Service at Community Park School in Princeton

Gardening - Saturday, September 20, 10 am to noon.  Rain Date: September 21.

Join Priscilla Hayes '75, School Garden Educator, and PA3 at the Community Park School Garden for weeding and clean up. 

Community Park Elementary School
372 Witherspoon St.
Princeton, NJ 08540
http://cp.princetonk12.org/programs/gardens/

Volunteers will help get the Community Park School garden in shape for an open house for teachers from around the area the following week.  The Community Park School garden is a cooperative effort, maintained mostly by volunteer parents from the school, and supported by a very part-time school garden educator (Priscilla) and the science teacher.  This effort will be entirely completed by volunteers.  
This project will include garden clean up and spruce up, but Priscilla will be doing instruction as well. She will show people around the garden, which is the most "urban" of Princeton's school gardens, and includes a prairie garden, some fruit trees, a small arboretum, etc.  

Please bring gloves, trowels, and other garden tools.

Please RSVP to Kristin at service@princetonaaa.org.
