David Brown has been named program coordinator for the Student Volunteers Council , coming to Princeton after 18 years as an administrator and counselor at nonprofit organizations serving needy children and young adults.
SVC, the University's largest student volunteer organization, supports more than 55 weekly service projects in Princeton, Trenton and other nearby communities. It also promotes discussion on community issues, sponsors service trips around the country and hosts Community Action, a pre-orientation service program for freshmen.
Before joining SVC, Brown served for a year as executive director of Angel's Wings, a Trenton-based interfaith program that provides emergency shelter for abused and neglected children.
Prior to that, Brown spent 17 years with Trenton-based Anchor House, a nonprofit organization that works with children and young adults in crisis and their families. After joining Anchor House in 1985 as a counselor, he served as a school outreach counselor, assistant director and associate executive director.
Brown also is a peer monitor for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, inspecting youth-oriented nonprofit programs that receive federal funds. He holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from Trenton State College, now known as the College of New Jersey.
Brown, whose appointment was effective July 14, succeeds Elizabeth Jensen, who stepped down in December.
