ReachOut is a partnership of three generations of Princeton alumni spanning five decades and united in our mission to enhance the capacity of Princeton students and graduates to have a positive influence on the world. We leverage professional experience, financial resources and personal networks in support of the energy, enthusiasm and passions of the Princeton community to make a difference.
ReachOut has three signature initiatives:
- We have for fourteen years awarded ReachOut Fellowships to Princeton seniors to implement in the year after graduation self-designed high-priority projects working with social change organizations in the U.S. and abroad. See ReachOut fellows here.
- Over the same period our College Awareness Program has organized graduate and undergraduate volunteers and friends to mentor disadvantaged students for their lives after high school. For more details, click here.
- For five years ReachOut’s Social Entrepreneurship Program has sponsored an annual business plan competition for undergraduates on campus and advised students who aspire to build for-profit or non-profit organizations with an explicit social mission. For more information, click here.
These three programs are what we have been doing, not who we are. ReachOut is a low cost volunteer group committed to being relevant and compelling to alumni, students and friends. Our initiatives will continue to evolve but the goal will remain the same: to serve members of the Princeton community and others who want to make the world a better place.
ReachOut programs depend on financial and volunteer support from alumni of the classes of 1956, 1981 and 2006.
