Promoting and celebrating community service among Princeton alumni.

Tigers in Service Initiative

The Committee invites each regional area, class and affiliate alumni association to "unite in service" by planning a community service event or project on a date of their choosing during the January/February timeframe. Symbolic in nature, and similar to the University's "Month of Service" which takes place on-campus during this time of year, the goal of the "Tigers in Service" initiative is to encourage alumni to learn and engage through service opportunities, which we hope will inspire service year-round.
