Become a PICS Mentor This Summer to an Amazing Princeton Student!


Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS) is an alumni-founded program with the John H. Pace, Jr. '39 Center for Civic Engagement that provides Princeton undergraduates paid summer internships in nonprofit organizations. As PICS interns, students engage in meaningful service opportunities, serve with community partner organizations in the U.S., connect academic lessons to real-world problems, and develop leadership skills.

PICS is a transformative experience that thrives at the intersection of students, community, and alumni. Students benefit from immersive summer internship opportunities in collaboration with community partners serving on the front lines of healthcare, education, the environment, and more.


Be an Alumni Mentor

Alumni Mentors are one of the most important aspects of the PICS summer internship program. Drawn from Princeton alumni and alumni spouses, Alumni Mentors are friends, listeners, guides, and advocates to PICS interns. For many students, PICS is their first professional work opportunity, and sharing your life and leadership skills positions the student and their community organization for success.

Alumni partners guide students as they grow from these professional experiences and introduce students to the Princeton alumni network. Many PICS students, community partners, and alumni form relationships that extend years beyond the initial internship experience. No prior mentoring experience is required and there will be an onboarding call for mentors prior to the start of the students' summer internships.
