Program 3

ARC Innovators

ARC Innovators provides experienced Princeton alumni with opportunities to apply and expand their professional skills in a nonprofit setting through pro bono projects with our partner organizations in New York City, New Jersey, and Washington, DC. Innovators are professionals who have at least a decade—and usually a few decades—of experience and are ready to contribute to organizations that need their particular skill set for an advanced, short-term project. By bringing their expertise and a fresh perspective to bear on persistent challenges faced by our nonprofit partners, Innovators create lasting change while gaining valuable experience in a nonprofit setting.
Innovators commit to working with organizational leadership on well-defined projects for a period of 2-6 months, usually for a few hours each week. Many projects can be done remotely.
