WHAT WE ARE
ReachOut 56-81-06 is a conduit for classmates of the Princeton Classes of 1956, 1981, and 2006 to participate in identification and implementation of solutions for societal problems and to inspire the talent and energy of classmates of those classes, their spouses, and others to achieve such results.
We are achieving these purposes through several initiatives:
We have for fifteen 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. For more, click here.
Over the same period our College Awareness Program has organized graduate and undergraduate volunteers and friends to mentor high school students for their lives after high school. For more, click here.
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, click here.
We are evolving a program in which Princeton alumni mentor undergraduates participating in our Social Entrepreneurship Program. For more, click here.
We are working on adapting our College Awareness Program to internet usage.
These programs are what we have been and are doing. 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 our goal will remain the same: to serve members of the Princeton community and others who want to make the world a better place.
