Jun 4 – ’20 Yale Graduates Welcome to 1stGenYale! Event
June 4, 2020 | 7:00 pm till 8:00 pm
Dear ’20 Yale Graduates and 1stGenYale Alumni,
1stGenYale, a Yale Alumni Association Shared Interest Group, welcomes all ’20 Yale graduates from across all schools and invites you to a celebration! All first-gen alumni are invited to attend and welcome our new graduates from all Yale Schools and degree programs.
Join us as we celebrate you and introduce you to 1stGenYale, an alumni-led support group for students and alumni.Meet alumni who want to get to know you and support you as a recent graduate!
Since we started in April 2016, we have grown from an idea to connecting over 1,800 alumni and hundreds of students who share similar experiences being first generation in their families to attend any college or graduate school and also coming from low-income under-resourced backgrounds.
While contributing different life experiences, we celebrate diversity of all abilities, ages, cultures, genders, ethnicities, race, and thought and connect from all Yale schools, classes, and years. We come together, support each other, and build new friendships in the Yale family.
Upon completing two years of creating 24 programs which connected alumni and students in different ways, we were recognized as an official Shared Interest Group of the Yale Alumni Association in April 2018. Since the Coronavirus began, we have created weekly webinars on job search strategies, interviewing skills, medical school and beyond, coping strategies for COVID-19, get togethers, and so much more. We are honored and humbled to have received the 2019 Excellence Award and the 2018 Outstanding SIG Award from the YAA Board of Governors.
