Welcome to the Princeton Club of Washington - Princeton Project 55 & DC-Area Partners (for 2009)


Princeton Project 55 & DC-Area Partners (for 2009)

A great organization wants to place more young alumni in DC-area internships. Put your good thinking to work.

Princeton Project 55 Looking to Identify More DC-Area Partners for 2009

Here's your opportunity to help -- by identifying potential host organizations.

Since 1990, Princeton Project 55's Public Interest Program has placed more
than 1,100 talented young alumni with non-profit and community organizations
across the country, including a number in the DC area.  The Program's goal is
to provide recent graduates with quality professional experiences in public policy
fields such as community development, education, employment/welfare, the
environment, advocacy, health and medicine, housing, women's issues, and
youth services. 

Project 55's Public Health Fellowships offer similar opportunities in public
health, too. Project 55 helps build a community among fellows, organizations
at which they work, local alumni volunteers, and alumni mentors matched with
each fellow. 
Because this area is ideally suited for this program, we would like to help
Project 55 identify additional non-profit organizations in our area that might be
interested in participating.  The program is currently well along in its process
of filling positions for the 2008-2009 year, so the positions would be for the
following year (2009-10).  Under the program, participating organizations are
provided with candidates to interview and (if acceptable) hire for 1-year posts.

The organizations are expected to pay a modest salary (currently $2350 per
month in DC) and provide health coverage.

Please let us know if you can suggest contacts at nonprofit organizations in
the DC area that you think might be interested in participating in this program.
The Project 55 staff would be delighted to follow up with them.  For further
information, please go to
www.project55.org/programs/pip, or contact Kathleen
Reilly, Project 55's Public Interest Program Director, at
