The John H. Pace, Jr. ’39 Center for Civic Engagement is pleased to welcome in a new year and a new group of student program leaders. At the start of each calendar year, students selected to join our student boards begin their work throughout the center. Each student board helps set the course for their program and supports a myriad of student-led service opportunities. Learn more about each board and meet the students leading the way:

  • Breakout Princeton offers students the opportunity to expand their education through immersive service-learning trips that engage with critical issues facing communities across the nation, and inspire sustained commitment back on campus. The Breakout Princeton Board supports student participants as they prepare, engage, and bring their experiences back to campus.
  • Community House Executive Board (CHEB) supports the student-driven youth and family development projects within Community House, each of which work with families to close the opportunity gap in Princeton, by supporting underrepresented area youth through innovative programming that focuses on providing tools for academic success and enhancing social-emotional literacy.
  • The Pace Council for Civic Values (PCCV) is a student board of the Pace Center whose mission is to inspire Princeton students to participate in, and to connect them to, meaningful civic engagement opportunities. PCCV members plan events, host dialogues, and focus on efforts that build an ethos of engagement at Princeton. 
  • The Student Organizations Board is a new leadership role at the Pace Center. Board members will help shape the direction of and support for student organizations with the Pace Center. 
  • The Students Volunteers Council Board supports collaborations between community and students to build more sustained service projects.
