Engaging in Service After PICS


Many PICS interns find that their PICS internship is just the beginning of a journey in professional service experiences. Some options for continuing your service journey are below. 

Student Advisory Council (SAC)

One excellent opportunity to continue your service after your PICS internship ends is by joining the Student Advisory Council (SAC). SAC members support PICS’ growth and development, continuing to encourage generations of Princetonians to serve in communities across the country and worldwide.  PICS interns who serve on SAC are most qualified to make this happen, building on the legacy and ongoing work of the Princeton alumni who founded PICS.  

For more information about SAC roles, responsibilities, and benefits, read our SAC page. With questions or to become a SAC member, contact PICS Program Coordinator Rose Holton (rholton@princeton.edu). 

Joining the SAC is one of the most meaningful ways to give back to the PICS program and pay it forward. My internship experiences truly impacted the way I view service and impact. Continuing your involvement with PICS through the SAC helps ensure that future Princeton students benefit from the opportunities we were granted and provides a platform to grow the program's impact through various leadership and engagement opportunities.
