Community ActionUniversity Affiliation: Pace Center for Civic Engagement
Community Action is a student-led pre-orientation program for the freshman class sponsored by the Student Volunteers Council at Princeton University. The program involves a week of volunteer service based on a community immersion experience that allows participants and leaders to live in or near their community service work area.
By combining a relevant service experience with meaningful community contact, Community Action seeks to promote an ethic of service and community awareness among undergraduates, foster productive collaboration between the university and surrounding communities, and engage all participants in both academic and interpersonal dialogue.
