CA Fellows

Founded by students in 1987, Community Action continues to place student leadership at its core. The CA Fellows program, established in 2017 is a competitive year long paid opportunity within the Pace Center for Civic Engagement.

Up to eight CA Fellows are selected annually for their commitment to service and the Princeton community, potential for continued leadership growth, and experience participating or coordinating past service or student organization programs. CA Fellows are responsible for community partnership development, communications, service learning activities, and logistical planning associated with the CA region that they manage. CA Fellows also provide mentorship and guidance to the CA Leadership Team members within their region, assist with the recruitment of Leadership Team members, facilitate trainings, and serve on a program-wide administrative working group.

CA Fellows participate in professional development, retreats, the Pace Center Student Leader Intensive, and are advised one-on-one by a member of the Community Action professional staff.

Applications for the CA Fellowship open in December with interviews taking place in January and final decisions made by the start of the spring semester. The position typically runs from late February - December with summer serving as a 13-week, full-time internship experience. For eligible students, the CA Fellowship also allows them to participate in Service Focus.  

Applications for 2019 are now closed.
