BENEFITING: Princeton AlumniCorps
We're fundraising for the Princeton AlumniCorps Emerging Leaders (EL) Program, an 8-month professional development program designed to equip aspiring leaders in the non-profit and public sectors with management and leadership training, peer support and networking and advising opportunities.
Our participation in this program is heavily subsidized through the generous gifts of individual donors. By donating to this program, you invest in the future of non-profit and public sector leaders and the overall sustainability of their fields. Now, we would like to pay this opportunity forward to a future Emerging Leader. Please help us achieve this goal by donating today.

Meet Andrew Trueblood
Chief of Staff, DC Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development
The AlumniCorps' Emerging Leaders Program has been an incredibly valuable experience at an important point in my career. The program has provided me with the resources and context to be a successful leader in the mission-driven world. It has helped me move from developing my own skills to becoming a manager and developing teams. I am truly excited to be a part of it and to have such a great cohort of fellow Emerging Leaders.
Meet Allison Grossman
Senior Legislative Associate, RESULTS
During my years in the nonprofit sector, I have worked incredibly hard, built my knowledge of global development and policy issues, and learned how the U.S. government actually works. But I hadn't found the opportunities I had hoped to build my management experience, improve my abilities to lead, and refine my communication skills – all necessary pieces as I seek to become a strong, compassionate, and effective leader in the social sector, helping build a community committed to social justice. But Emerging Leaders has provided that space to learn, ask questions, and address challenges with a set of incredibly talented peers. I have already seen the impact of the program in changes I have made in my work, and I hope that young leaders in the future will have the benefit of participating.
Meet Mary Kate Chaath
Regional Director, U.S. Fund for UNICEF
Before I finished my undergrad degree, I was working in the public sector. I have worked for my alma mater, both small and large international NGOs in the US and abroad, and I am now leading the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
The Princeton AlumniCorp Emerging Leaders course is empowering me to better serve as the Director of the Mid-Atlantic Region to help UNICEF save the lives of more children all over the world. The program is giving me the tools to increase my impact as an effective leader guiding the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s newest regional presence. The tools that I have already learned during the 5 months have been put to use in every day management, project planning, strategic planning and assessment.
I feel so fortunate to be part of this program with esteemed cohorts. EL is important because it fills a gap in a space that often lacks development opportunities for young professionals.
Meet Suhad Babaa
Director of Programming, Just Vision
Participating in the Emerging Leaders program has afforded me a unique opportunity to reflect, question and gain valuable tools that further my abilities as a manager, a leader, and a colleague and partner in the field. From the peer coaching, to access to leaders in the field, to incredible professional coaching opportunities, the resources provided by the EL program has made it possible to take my management and leadership abilities to the next level. I'm grateful for this opportunity to sharpen my skills, strengthen my abilities and become a stronger leader so that I am able to bring it back to my team, community and pass these lessons along to those I work with and supervise. I hope many others are able to benefit from this fantastic program!
