Calling All Nonprofit Organizations!

Are you connected to any organizations doing innovative public interest work in Boston, Chicago, Connecticut, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, or Washington, DC?

If you think they may be a good fit for a fellow for the 2012-13 fellowship year, please contact Sara McCord Princeton Project 55 Fellowship Program Manager at project55@alumnicorps.org to learn more and be connected with a local program. Remember the partner organization deadline is Friday, December 2, 2011.

For over 20 years, PP55 fellowships have given recent Princeton graduates opportunities to work in the public interest and be connected with a supportive like-minded community. The program continues to grow under the direction of Program Leader Maria Orozco ’03.

    Congratulations John and Princeton 55 for all the great work you do. Without collective effort of many people spread out over many places and many years most of the significant social problems facing our country and world will not be solved.

    I’ve led the Tutor/Mentor Connection in Chicago since 1993 as an effort to collect information that anyone could use to help build and sustain mentoring, tutoring and learning programs in high poverty neighborhoods that connect volunteers who don’t live in poverty with young people who do. I’ve maintained a directory of non-school tutor/mentor programs since 1994 and share this on an interactive map-based portal that enables anyone to know what programs are operating and what neighborhoods still don’t have programs.

    In addition I’ve organized events like a May and November Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference to encourage people to come together face to face on an on-going basis and to build public attention that works like advertising to draw volunteers and donors directly to all of the tutor/mentor programs in the Chicago region.

    In addition I’ve used print and email newsletters to share information that I discover with others who might want to use t his information in their own efforts.

    The next conference is Friday, November 4 and I invite Princeton 55 members in Chicago to participate. The web site is http://www.tutormentorconference.org . We’re all getting a bit older and without younger people taking ownership of this information and these ideas what we have built and learned over many years may be lost to future generations.
