The Pace Center is currently reviewing all programs for health and safety to prioritize the wellbeing of students and community. We expect to resume activity in early October. 

Founded in 1969, the Community House program works with families to support underrepresented youth through innovative programming that focuses on providing tools for academic success and enhancing social-emotional literacy.  Community House’s core values of Bridging Communities, Demonstrating Integrity and Fostering Growth manifest in each of the program’s youth and family development projects, dynamic family focused events and holistic approach to youth development work.

Community House programs emphasize holistic youth development through tutor-mentorship, recognizing that every tutoring relationship is an opportunity for mentorship, and every mentoring relationship is an opportunity to promote academic success. Community House is firmly rooted in the local community and staff, student leaders and volunteers deeply value establishing meaningful and long-lasting relationships with the children and families of Princeton.

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. Due to Princeton University's response to COVID-19, Community House's physical location is currently closed.
