Community House

Community House

Community House’s student-driven education programs work with families to close the achievement gap in Princeton by offering support in the areas of academic success and social-emotional literacy for underrepresented area youth.

Founded in 1969 by an interracial group of Princeton University undergraduates, Community House works with students from preschool and kindergarten all the way up to when they launch into college. Community House joined the Pace Center for Civic Engagement in 2007 and resides on the third floor of the Carl A. Fields Center on Prospect Avenue in Princeton, NJ.

During the SAT Prep Program volunteers teach Math and English sessions twice a week and also provide one-on-one tutoring to help high school students develop standardized test-taking skills.
PEEK is a program through which undergraduate students have the opportunity to visit elementary school classrooms and teach children basic principles of engineering using LEGO Mindstorms robotics kits.
Helping students navigate the high school experience and prepare to launch into college, Generation One provides mentoring, academic tutoring, subject-specific study circles, writing workshops, field trips, college tours and other activities.
