Community Service Opportunities
This year, OWL is introducing a number of community service
opportunities. We will be visiting Womanspace, a battered
women’s shelter in West Trenton, as well as mentoring
girls at John Witherspoon Middle School through Girls’
Empowerment. We are also offering opportunities to join two
SVC projects—Campus Girl Scouts and HomeFront Mentoring—in
their volunteer missions.
Womanspace is a
battered women’s shelter located in West Trenton. In
December, Womanspace will light 50,000 luminaries along Nassau
Street for its annual Communities of Light project.
OWL will be volunteering
at the shelter to repackage luminary kits left from last year
next Friday, October 14 from 1 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. (We will
meet to drive to the shelter at 12:15 p.m. and return to campus
by 4 p.m.) If interested, contact Jessica Gross at jrgross@.
Empowerment, OWL members can mentor girls at John Witherspoon
Middle School on Witherspoon Street. Stay tuned for updates
on visits to the middle school.
3. Campus Girl
A project of the
Student Volunteers Council, Campus Girl Scouts allows Princeton
students to tutor Princeton High School students. The timing
of tutoring sessions is dependent on volunteers’ schedules.
If interested, contact Alana Arnold at aarnold@.
Campus Girl Scouts
also offers an After School Program at Princeton Housing Village
for 12 girls in 3rd through 7th grade. The program runs on
Tuesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. In addition, the After
School Program at the Clay Center for Learning runs on Thursdays
from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. If interested in either after
school program, contact Sonia Esparza at sesparza@.
4. HomeFront Mentoring
HomeFront, a non-profit
that works to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness,
serves thousands of Mercer County families with case management,
food, housing facilities, and programs for homeless kids.
The Student Volunteers Council’s HomeFront Mentoring
Project is a weekly project in which volunteers work to help
kids at the Family Preservation Center in Ewing escape the
realities of homelessness. If interested, contact Caroline
Lau at cslau@.
