Princeton in Africa seeks to develop young leaders committed to Africa's advancement. We believe the best way to do so is to send young adults to Africa for yearlong service fellowships with our inspiring partner organizations. Our motto - Service for a Year. Commitment for a Lifetime.
What We Do
Service for a Year.
Princeton in Africa, an independent nonprofit organization, matches talented and passionate recent college graduates with organizations working across Africa for yearlong service fellowships. For the 2013-14 fellowship year, we will have 46 Fellows working in 15 countries with 25 partner organizations. After being placed, Princeton in Africa continues to provide personal and professional support for Fellows throughout the year. Our Fellows have helped improve education, healthcare, and living conditions, source fresh water, protect the environment, rebuild following conflict and disasters, and so much more.
Commitment for a Lifetime.
During their year of service, Princeton in Africa Fellows help our partner organizations to achieve positive changes on the ground, and are forever changed themselves in the process. They create connections that last their lifetime. Some stay and continue to work in Africa, others leverage their experience to launch careers in international development. No matter where they go, our fellows’ experiences with Princeton in Africa transform their lives and perspectives about the world and their role within it. Since our founding in 1999, we’ve sent more than 300 fellows to Africa to work in 34 countries, and we now have an incredible alumni network around the world.
