Service to Community

Giving Back: Yale Day of Service and Yale Alumni Service Corps

Service is an integral part of the Yale experience, the desire to take what you learned on campus and give back for the greater good. The YAA can help you effect that change, whether it's by celebrating a day of service or a year of service, fostering an annual service project, or traveling (when it's safe to do so) to make a difference in communities around the world.

Yale Day of Service

Yale Day of Service BoulderAlumni, family, and friends in the thousands come together each spring to celebrate Yale's tradition of service by contributing to their communities. Volunteers are needed at all levels: participating in sites, coordinating with local organizations to plan each project, and leading a regional area. We also encourage virtual sites to maximize options for participation.

Yale Alumni Service Corps

YASC Cape TownThe Yale Alumni Service Corps (YASC) is a volunteer-led initiative committed to community-driven, sustainable service. Serving where communities have invited our participation, we collaborate with local communities, organizations, and Yale University partners to assist communities in addressing their self-identified needs and goals. YASC presents opportunities for alumni, family, and friends to come together, use their diverse talents in locally prioritized projects in the arts, education, sports, health, and economic development to serve communities in need, promote mutual cross-cultural awareness and make change together.
