Lend a Hand: PAC + Tigers Spruce Up a DCPS School

JOIN Princeton Alumni Corps (Princeton Project 55) as it brings TIGER hands to DCPS Beautification Day, Aug. 21 at 8 AM. Read on for news on how to participate (or donate) ....


Join the Princeton AlumniCorps and Project 55
for DCPS Beautification Day - Sat. 8/21 - 8am

 

As part of its twentieth anniversary celebration, Princeton Project 55
became the Princeton AlumniCorps.  The name change culminated after a
two-year strategic planning process focused on expanding the organization’s
impact on the Princeton community. “Now, looking forward to our next 20 years,
we will be able to grow and broaden our influence with a name that both reaches
out to Princetonians of all ages and compellingly characterizes what we do,”
said Board Chair Kenly Webster ’55. 

The year-long Project 55 Public Interest Fellowship continues to thrive, and
soon will be joined by other Princeton AlumniCorps Programs.  In 2010-11,
Washington, DC hosts thirteen P55 Fellows. Please join the DC Princeton
AlumniCorps and Project 55 community
for a day of service to benefit the
District of Columbia Public Schools.

An annual event, DCPS Beautification Day was established in 2005 as a citywide
“spruce up” of all DC public school buildings in preparation for the first day
of school. Beautification efforts will include landscaping, trash pick-up, light
painting, planting flowers, and other external beautification efforts. Volunteers
and supplies are needed at over 100 schools. Families are welcome to participate
with their children.

Bruce-Monroe is located off Georgia Avenue, in a working class neighborhood north
of Howard University.  The vast majority of the students are native Spanish speakers.
With its strong dual language program, the Bruce-Monroe teachers work hard to ensure
that their English language learning students are able to meet grade-level goals. 

What a wonderful place to support!

Please note that DCPS wants to keep school groups to 25 volunteers.  If we have more
than 25 volunteers, we may need to add a second site.  Contact Crystal Moore ’96 with
any questions at
camoore@alumni.princeton.edu.
