Princeton Arts Alumni (PA2) Social Impact Fellowship

Fellowship Description

Social Impact Fellows at Princeton Arts Alumni (PA2) will contribute to the design and launch of the next decade of the organization, which recently earned its 501(c)3 status. Poised to build programming, expand relationships and raise funds with a refreshed mission, the organization is ready for growth and the creative minds to realize it. Partnering directly with Founder Pilar Castro-Kiltz ‘10 and the new board of directors, Fellows will have the opportunity to develop skills in organization building, communications, project management, innovation, relationship development, data-based decision making, and strategic planning.

There will be many opportunities for interacting with alums, university entities, and professionals in the arts industries. Pilar Castro-Kiltz will directly oversee fellows and offer both mentorship and training on these skills, which she has honed through over a decade of working with business and nonprofit leaders through More Canvas Consulting. The Fellowship can be tailored to focus on areas of special interest.
