Community Service

The Community Service Committee of the Princeton Club of Washington aims to engage alumni in community service. We try to provide opportunities for members to contribute time, expertise or resources. Our commitment to Community Service projects is best exemplified by our Adopt-A-Family program. Since 2000, the PCW has sponsored this program through Friends in Action of Montgomery County, Maryland. Each year we assist struggling families in the area and help to make their Thanksgiving and winter holidays warm and happy.


Alumni Schools Committee

Princeton Alumni Schools (ASC) committees aim to offer every applicant an interview with a Princeton graduate. Each year Tiger alums interview virtually every candidate (usually around 1,200 in total) who apply from the D.C., Northern Virginia and Maryland regions. The interviews supply a personal perspective that can help Admissions form a fuller understanding of the applicant that supplements the small mountain of information the applicants submit directly to Admissions. Most ASC volunteers interview two or three candidates a year. On behalf of these deserving young people and on behalf of Princeton, please consider stepping up to help us reach our goal of interviewing each applicant. Interviews are typically held in November (Early Action) or January and February (Regular Decision). You can sign up to be an alumni interview on the Princeton Alumni website here


Young Alumni

The Princeton Club of Washington’s Young Alumni group is dedicated to planning events, social gatherings, and fun activities for alumni in the DC area. 


Princeton Prize

The DC Committee of the Princeton Prize in Race Relations welcomes volunteers from the Princeton community in the DMV to our regional committee. The Prize recognizes high school-age students who significantly engage and challenge their schools or communities to advance racial equity in order to promote respect and understanding among all people.  The winner from the region receives $1,000 cash award and participates in an annual symposium on race at Princeton University.  For more information visit pprize.princeton.edu

The work of the regional committee includes spreading awareness of the prize to regional high schools and organizations throughout the fall, reviewing applications in February to select the regional winner, and planning a local recognition ceremony scheduled in the spring.  The committee welcomes contributions from all, but is especially in need of those with a passion for event planning, social media and communications.

Please email princetonprize.dc@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering.


Princeton Women’s Network

The Princeton Women's Network (PWN) is a dedicated community that focuses on and supports Princeton women in their personal and professional lives.

If you are interested in getting involved with PWN event planning, please email dc.princetonwomen [at] gmail [dot] com.
