2014 Special Olympics USA Games

PA3 members are invited to join the Princeton University group of volunteers at the event.  

Note from Rick Ober '65:  "I have been appointed as the volunteer Family Services Lounge Manager at Princeton University for the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games being held in Mercer County June 16-20, including Aquatics (DeNunzio Pool) and Athletics (Weaver Track Stadium).  We will host the families of the participating athletes.  From past experiences, I found working with these Special Olympics athletes with intellectual disabilities and their families to be incredibly rewarding. I would love to have you as a volunteer for a day or more to help me out. 
Volunteering requires being available for at least one day full shift from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM. I will be working a full shift every day.   If you are interested in helping out, please go soon to, click on the Get Involved > Volunteer tabs and read the info.  Then click on Register to Volunteer on the right.  After entering your contact information [you will have to upload a head shot photo for your credentials] select Family Services and then go to Aquatics>Family Services Attendant or Athletics>Family Services Attendant.  This will sign you up for the Princeton University venue."

If you are interested in volunteering for the event in a different capacity, please visit to sign up.  Select "general volunteer." Then, on the page where you enter your contact information, you’ll see a group drop-down menu - select Princeton University.  Choose the event and position that interests you and the orientation session you can attend (last item).

  • Channeling the activist spirit in alumni from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s by finding them skills-based Community Volunteers opportunities in Chicago and the Princeton area.
  • Helping college students and alumni around the country organize initiatives inspired by the PP55 example through The Alumni Network.
  • Engaging more than 200 volunteers and more than 450 donors in supporting and driving all facets of our work.

All of this is possible because of your support and the hard work of our many volunteers, staff, and Board members, who ensure that our programs and impact continue to grow. Thank you for your belief in our work!

Volunteer ESL Tutors Needed


The Individual English Conversation Program is one of several programs run by the Friends of Davis International Center. This program matches graduate students and visiting scholars at the University with a volunteer tutor to practice conversational English. This is a one-on-one program. The pair is expected to meet for an hour or so once a week for up to an academic year. The main purpose is to give the student the opportunity to improve his or her English skills with the guidance of a native speaker, in an informal atmosphere. Tutors often find themselves assisting in a variety of other ways to help the student adjust to life in Princeton, and new friendships develop. This is a highly rewarding activity for both the volunteer and the student.

At least 50 students are enrolled at any given time, so new tutors are always in demand. The most important qualification is that the tutor be a native English speaker. No teaching or ESL experience is required.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, or have any questions, please contact Program coordinator Carl Clough at (908.359.8801) or Hanna Hand at 609.258.1170 (Davis International Center). Thank you!
