DPCS MISSION:
To inspire Dartmouth students to join with Dartmouth alumni and their families in addressing problems facing our society.

DPCS HISTORY:
Started in 1995 by the Class of 1959, the program now has eleven Dartmouth classes supporting DPCS: 1947, 1954, 1958, 1959, 1963, 1967, 1977, 1979, 1986, 1987, and 1990.  The Class of 1967 joined DPCS in 1999. 

With more & more of today’s college students wanting to participate in community service and social action needs, DPCS became the vehicle for mobilizing Dartmouth Alumni and students to participate in public service initiatives.  DPCS is now initiating a yearlong graduate fellowship program for Dartmouth graduates with Community Service Organizations in New York City and Washington, D.C.

YOU CAN GET INVOLVED WITH DPCS IN THREE WAYS:

1. Community Service Organization  (CSO):

You may be involved with or aware of a non-profit community service organization near you which could benefit from hosting an 8-10 week internship from a Dartmouth undergraduate. These internships are expected to be significant (40 hours per week) with productive and rewarding responsibilities for the intern. If you so desire, please refer a CSO to DPCS (email address at top of page) or

Director of Fellowships and Internships
c/o Tucker Foundation
6154 South Fairbanks Hall
Hanover, NH 03755
603-646-2558

2. Mentor:

Each intern is assigned a Dartmouth alumni/ae mentor. The mentor is not expected to be fully knowledgeable in the CSO’s activities, but is a guiding influence to answer questions and be a local presence for the intern. For you, it is a great way to interact with a Dartmouth undergraduate. If you are interested, contact DPCS or the Director of Internships and Fellowships at the Tucker Foundation (see info above).

3. Financial:

Each student receives a stipend of around $4,000.00 for an internship to help defray living expenses. All interns are funded each year in part or whole by individual gifts from Dartmouth alumni/ae.  DPCS needs your help to ensure the program’s continued growth.

You can contribute through the Class of ’67 Dues Check-Off when you send in your class dues,
or you can contribute directly to DPCS by following information on the DPCS website.

Michael Tucker, is the Class of ‘67 representative to the DPCS Board of Directors which has representatives from all participating classes on its board.  Win Johnson is also on the board as Treasurer as the Class of ’59 starts to pass on their leadership of the program.
