Field Guide to Service

At the Pace Center, we strive to help students learn to do service well and have a positive impact in the community. So how do you do service well? In service, learning is a process that involves the whole person: thinking, feeling and examining before, during and after engagement. The Field Guide to Service provides simple steps and exercises to help you prepare, engage and reflect effectively. 

How do I get a Field Guide?

For the 2020-2021 academic year, we are unable to provide physical copies of the Field Guide to Service as our staff is working remotely, away from campus. In the interim, you may download a PDF of the Field Guide to Service.

How do I use the Field Guide?

We are thrilled that you want to use the Field Guide to Service! We welcome you to use it in service and share it with others. To do so, we ask that you respect the guide and its contents:

  • Please credit the Pace Center for Civic Engagement and Princeton University when sharing the guide with others, in presentations, or when using it or its exercises.
  • Please keep its appearance and content intact. We hope you are inspired by the guide to create exercises or content of your own. When doing so, please avoid directly lifting language or design elements and using them as your own.
  • And last but not least, please share a photo and short narrative with us  at about how you used the guide and what you learned so that we can continue to improve the Field Guide to Service as a resource and tool. 

See you out in the field!
