      The Yale-Jefferson Awards are presented annually, recognizing sustained public service that is individual, innovative, impactful, and inspiring. The recipients are three Yalies – a Yale College student, a graduate or professional school student, and a member of the alumni body – all of whom have demonstrated service that draws on the Yale community and benefits the world beyond Yale.

      Join us for this kick-off event as part of Celebrate Service Week, as we honor the 2022 award winners. They have made an impact in so many ways – providing leadership in service to elders, providing educational and health resources to orphans and other vulnerable populations, and strengthening and supporting the New Haven community.

      In this virtual interactive session, we will celebrate these honorees with a virtual awards ceremony followed by a fireside chat, where they will share their stories and discuss the impact of their service engagement. In addition, our award participants will talk about their work in the context of today's challenges, including the COVID landscape, and ways to get involved.

Organized in collaboration with Creatnet and Manzil, Indian non-profits, YASC has been part of two projects to cultivate and facilitate business skills starting with a train-the-trainer (leadership) program. The second program supplemented a mini-MBA program and we mentored, provided advice, and counseled entrepreneurs through a series of online sessions. These programs have led to robust exchanges and developed a deeper cultural understanding through virtual service engagement. Join us for a discussion about these programs as part of Celebrate Service Week and hear from YASC members Kathy Edersheim '87, Jeff Harlowe '77, Patty Locuratolo Hymanson '79, and Peter Oh '95. The panel will be moderated by Perry Sayles '88, YASC chair and trip producer for the March 2019 trip to the Dominican Republic. This is a great opportunity to learn more about these unique virtual service engagement opportunities, discuss what we accomplished on behalf of those we worked with, and how these programs can strengthen our commitment for long-term engagement with the ground partners we work with and the communities we serve. false
