Since 2002, Princeton in Latin America, a PLAS partner, has been connecting recent graduates with year-long service opportunities. Conducted in concert with NGOs and multilateral organizations, they are designed to promote socially responsible development, while cultivating participant leadership skills through hands-on work. PiLA invites those with a demonstrated commitment to service and scholarship to spend a year making a difference. The program is open to both Princeton graduates and well-qualified students from accredited U.S. and Canadian universities. Competency in Spanish, Portuguese, and/or French is required.
