Organization Description
Since 1965, Impact Broward helps to solve community problems with senior volunteers. By summer of 2018, however, Impact Broward will be re-branded and relaunched as a new think and act tank that will research and implement socioeconomic solutions to support the aging community.

Given the broad scope of our work, Impact Broward regularly confronts policy obstacles that if removed, would make lives better for the populations we serve. Having a thoughtful, civically -minded Princeton intern to help us build a public policy agenda for the federal, state and local level would provide a much-needed substantive voice to the organization and the population it serves.

Evaluation Excerpt

[My supervisor,] Peter was great! He was clearly super busy but made time to talk with me whenever I needed guidance. He is also one of the most personable people I've met. He made the work environment fun, guided, and clear. I couldn't have been happier with his mentorship.
