This summer, more than 160 undergraduate students are spending their breaks interning at public service and nonprofit organizations in over 30 cities in the United States, Canada, Bermuda, Ireland and France as part of the Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS) program. Mikecia Clarke of Ewing, NJ, is among the undergraduates participating in the 8- to 10-week paid, alumni-sponsored public and nonprofit summer internships. The PICS program exposes students to the rewards of service and encourages participants to continue as volunteers and board members for nonprofits after graduation, in the Princeton tradition of service to humanity.  Learn more about the Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS) program.
