Princeton Internships in Civic Service

Thank You to all who made 2017 a great PICS internship summer!
Henry Barmeier"I was a PICS intern in the summer of 2007 with an investigative journalism nonprofit in DC called the Center for Public Integrity. That summer was one of the most important formative experiences I had through my time at Princeton, and remains a big reason why I still find myself in the nonprofit sector today (I've been with the nonprofit consulting firm Bridgespan for about 3.5 years).

— Henry Barmeier, 2010

PICS was established by Princeton University Alumni in the belief that community service is essential to the welfare of society and inspired by the rich tradition of Princeton and Princetonians "in the Nation's Service and in the Service of All Nations."

What interns are saying about PICS:

“I am so impressed with the work Education Outside does in advancing science education and sparking children’s interest in nature through teaching outside in school gardens. I gained a unique insight into how a nonprofit, more specifically, a service-based nonprofit, operates. The organization’s work and the staff’s drive/office culture has really piqued my interest in sustainability, education, and especially healthy eating.
