The Princeton Project 55 program connects talented Princeton graduates with effective and innovative public interest organizations around the United States. P55 is a program run by Princeton AlumniCorps, founded in 1989 by the Princeton Class of 1955 to engage alumni in significant, lifelong public service.
Yale School of Management
HDF worked with the Yale School of Management Social Impact Consulting Club on projects from 2013 to 2015. These projects included:
The Social Impact Consulting Club (SIC) brings together nonprofit leaders and Yale MBA students to achieve positive impacts. SIC’s goals are to make a measurable impact on the success of the nonprofits we serve and foster a close relationship between Yale students and the greater New Haven community.
Stamford Mayor’s Youth Employment Program
Since 2014, HDF has hired City of Stamford high school students as interns through the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program (MYEP). Several of these students continued to work part-time at HDF during the school year and helped us make great strides!
MYEP is a paid summer internship program matching Stamford High School juniors and seniors students with five-week positions. Interns spend four days at their workplace and attend leadership class on Fridays at the Government Center.
