Princeton AlumniCorps

Founded in 1989 by Princeton’s Class of ’55, Princeton AlumniCorps supports community organizations committed to building a more just, equitable and sustainable society by developing and engaging young leaders and professionals of all ages to advance social change. We have two main national programs, the Project 55 Fellowship program, and the Emerging Leaders program, both focused on leadership development within the nonprofit sector for different participant audiences. We are a small highly collaborative team with seven staff members - one is our intern who started with us through PICS! Our small team works hard, but also takes the time to get to know one another and have fun. Our five team values are; authenticity, abundance, empowerment/education, equity and justice, and adaptability.

Internship Description 

We recently finalized our new strategic plan for 2021-2026, with several initiatives focused on growing our donor base, expanding both of our programs, and the creation of a new network wide service. Having a PICS intern join our team would strengthen our approach to implementing this strategic plan, while simultaneously strengthening our current programming. The intern would be able to support strategic and current projects, helping them gain a breadth of experience by working with our whole team (this includes development, communications, programming, and operations). A PICS intern can support some of the following: Project 55 and Emerging Leaders program evaluation, data management, program expansion research, and website design. PICS interns might participate in development and foundation research to support AlumniCorps's fundraising efforts. They might also support operations via logistics for events, support of our Salesforce database and additional research. A PICS intern could also work with our communications team on graphic design, marketing materials or social media. Specific projects will be determined based on the needs of the organization at the time, and the skills and interests of the intern. They would also have access to our professional development programming and resources, join our staff meetings, and would be invited to participate in any staff training. Our experience with our former PICS intern was incredibly positive given her creativity and energy - she was given guidance and structured tasks, with freedom to make the project her own. The PICS intern’s creativity, passion, and feedback would not only be welcome, but valued by our whole team.
