What Is

Civic Engagement?

Civic engagement is the process by which an individual becomes involved within their community. There are many ways to be active and involved: community service, volunteer work, public events, and community programs and groups. More information about our site and civic engagement can be found on the "About" page. Below, you will find a list of current events in the Princeton area, as well as a separate list of opportunities for service.

African American Parent Support Group (AAPSG) is a group who advocates on behalf of the African American students and students of the Black diaspora in the West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District. AAPSG’s mission is to work in partnership with the school district, parents, students and the community, to create programs for students in grades K-12 that will enhance positive self-esteem and promote cultural diversity in curriculum and instruction programs.  AAPSG also works to ensure that children have the necessary tools to achieve academic excellence in a safe, caring and welcoming environment that challenges students academically while also supporting their social and emotional needs in the West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District. AAPSG will discuss lessons learned and give guidance for those who would like to do similar work in their own school districts.
