Volunteer for City Treks

Students walking up steps from subway station into downtown New York City

Host undergraduate and graduate students for a visit at your organization. 

We take groups of 10-15 students into New York City to visit two organizations from the same industry area for two to four hours each. The goal of the City Trek is to provide students an inside look at an industry and possible careers, and to meet alumni and working professionals. For employer hosts, it's an opportunity to highlight your work and build awareness of your organization among Princeton students.

The format of a Trek site visit is flexible. Examples of activities during past Treks include introducing students to different departments and job functions, a tour of the workspace, conversation over a meal or snacks, and when possible, meeting alumni working at the organization.
