Princeton-Blairstown Center welcomes Pam Gregory as Executive Director
The Princeton-Blairstown Center is proud to announce and welcome Pam Gregory as the organization’s Executive Director. Pam joined PBC in December 2013 after spending two years at Cirque du Soleil as Director of Global Citizenship US, where she oversaw corporate giving, employee engagement, public affairs and the company’s Cirque du Monde programs for at-risk youth.
Prior to this role, Pam spent more than 20 years working with at-risk youth through progressively responsible roles at Inwood House, Children For Children and Girls Quest, where she focused on strategic planning, board development, program development & evaluation, and all aspects of fundraising, marketing, and public affairs. Pam also has a wealth of experience in social-emotional learning and experiential education, having served as both the Program Director and Executive Director of Trail Blazers, one of the oldest continually operating summer programs for at-risk youth in the U.S.
Pam holds a BA from the University of New Orleans and an MA in Environmental Education from Goddard College. She also completed the Executive Level Program at Columbia Business School’s Institute for Non Profit Management.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Princeton-Blairstown team,” Ms. Gregory said. “I look forward to leading the organization and continuing our 106 year-long commitment to social justice and empowering vulnerable young people to reach their full potential.”
For over 100 years, Princeton-Blairstown Center has provided adventure-based experiential education to at-risk urban youth. What began in 1908 as a summer camp run by Princeton University students to give inner-city boys an opportunity to have a character-building fresh air experience has evolved into wide variety of year-round, multi-service, youth development experiential educational programs serving over 4,000 students from the Mid-Atlantic States.
