The Month of Service creates space for all members of the Princeton campus community to celebrate the importance of engagement and showcase the myriad of ways we serve at Princeton. Inspired by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of service and justice, Month of Service runs from January 4-January 29, 2021 and is coordinated by the Pace Center. Core components of the Month of Service include opportunities for students, staff, faculty, and alumni to engage in service, workshops, and reflection.
Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, Month of Service will only offer virtual opportunities during January 2021 for students, staff, faculty, and alumni to connect, serve, and engage.
Engage at Home
Drawing on King's legacy, Month of Service aims to focus on the communities we belong to and hold dear, both near and far, through safe and remote service and civic engagement opportunities. With issues of hunger and homelessness exacerbated in many of our communities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Month of Service will be centering service and learning this year around these two topics.
With Princetonians spread across the globe, Month of Service offers tools and resources to help everyone engage wherever you call home. Our How to ... Engage at Home page provides best practices and other resources to prepare, plan, and continue to engage in service safely in your own backyard. Our Community Guide aims to both introduce you to community partner organizations throughout the greater Princeton area and offer ways you can support their needs. In addition, Month of Service is packed with virtual workshops, partner conversations, and remote reflection to help you build your skills and connect with others in the Princeton community. We hope you will join us to engage in whatever way is right for you this month and we welcome the opportunity to stay connected all year through.
