Princeton AlumniCorps’ ARC Innovators program is now in its fourth year. Since accepting our first Innovators in 2012, more than thirty Princeton alumni and friends have contributed to twenty-four projects at non-profit organizations in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Washington, DC.
The 2015-16 cohort is our largest to date, with 15 Innovators matched with organizations seeking pro bono assistance. This year’s projects have addressed a wide array of needs, including strategic planning, legal services, and website design.
Here is what participants are saying about the 2015-16 ARC Innovators program:
“Paul [Firstenberg ‘55] has been an incredible gift. He gives us his time and shares his vast amount of experience and knowledge in the most patient and giving way possible… I believe with Paul’s help we can turn the corner so that FamilyKind can do what we set out to do – help families in desperate need of our services. ” – Lesley Ann Friedland, Executive Director, FamilyKind
“Helping the Fireboat Firefighter Museum create a viable marketing plan has been one of the most rewarding, challenging, fun, occasionally frustrating, and ultimately satisfying experiences Roberta [Leger] and I have ever had. We have spent many hours debating, planning and creating ideas to try to take the fledgling museum to the next level… Through our contribution, we will enjoy being an integral part of the museum going forward, all made possible by the Princeton AlumniCorps’ ARC Innovator Program.” – Susan Abell, Innovator
Though the ARC Innovators program will begin accepting applications for the 2016-17 program year next March, there are a few projects still seeking alumni Innovators now. Click here to learn more about Princeton AlumniCorps’ ARC Innovators program and current opportunities.
