PA3 and Princeton AlumniCorps

invite you to join us
for a Reception and Presentation


Wednesday, January 18th, 2017
from 6-8 pm

at Princeton AlumniCorps
12 Stockton St, Princeton

Jim Farrin, Class of 1958 and Walter Fortson, formerly incarcerated spokesman of The Petey Greene Program, will speak about the program's mission to supplement education in correctional institutions by preparing volunteers, primarily college students, to provide free, quality tutoring and related programming to support the academic achievement of incarcerated people.

Read Jim Farrin's recent piece in USA Today as well as recent press.

The Petey Greene Program was founded by Charles Puttkamer '58 and the program was selected as the 50th reunion Service Project for the Class of 1958 in 2008.

You are certain to be impressed and inspired.
