PPRR operates in 27 regions nationally and is growing at a steady pace. It is a volunteer-run organization enlisting the support of over 300 Princeton alumni, all dedicated to an inclusive and supportive society.

PPRR encourages applications from any current 9th-12th grade student who, in the past 12 months, has organized and played a leadership role in a volunteer effort that has positively impacted race relations in his or her school or community. Past recipients include:

  • A high school senior, who perceiving the need for his school's curriculum to reflect increasing student diversity, worked with faculty members in the social studies and history departments to develop a new course to be taught to fellow students, "Diversity in America."
  • A student who, recognizing that students of color are under-represented in technology, created a program that encouraged students of color to learn coding alongside other students. Finding common ground in a shared interest resulted in better understanding while creating more robust opportunities for all.
