Be a CA Leader
Become a CA Leader!
Community Action (CA) is all about – what else – community. As a leader, you'll not only help incoming freshmen learn what it means to be a part of the Princeton University community, you'll also experience the power of community interaction as you dive in to work alongside local nonprofits and community leaders. Challenge yourself, meet new people, build friendships – and help incoming freshmen do the same.
During CA you’ll lead a trip of incoming freshmen focused on a societal issue. You’ll live, eat, and work in one of the many diverse communities in and around Princeton. You’ll engage with new people and cultures as you tackle key hands-on projects developed by your community partners – renovating homes, restoring city gardens, clearing trails, painting murals, working with youth, and more. Service activities are paired with evening fun and reflection.
CA welcomes leaders from all backgrounds – no experience necessary! All you need is an open mind, a sense of curiosity, and a willingness to learn new things.
