What We've Accomplished So Far

With active support from the AYA, UCS and various Yale graduate and professional schools - and following a year of focus groups and the development of our strategic plan - STAY began life several years ago. From the outset, student and alumni/ae response has driven us forward. STAY has already:

  • Attracted, as founders, leading Yale students and alumni/ae
  • Deployed mission-based committees, each with student and/or alumni volunteers
  • Held more than 20 financial literacy learning sessions, attended by more than 500 GSP and undergraduate students
  • Obtained a challenge gift from an individual donor, aimed at raising $11,000 in seed money
  • Attracted $30,000 in funding (with possible further support) from a well-known foundation
  • Supported 6 syllabus-and-case-study driven Student Leadership Forums led by alumni/ae speakers
  • Co-sponsored Career Panels attracting close to 1,000 Yalies and 50 alumni/ae panelists
  • Enlisted Yale students - for the first time ever - as Site Coordinators for Yale Day of Service
  • Committed hundreds of Yale students to participate in Yale Day of Service
  • Begun piloting multi-tiered mentoring (e.g., seniors-to-alums-to-grads-to-undergrads-to-at-risk-youth)
  • Attracted financial support from individual donors

These events continue to attract many alumni and students who have never before participated in Yale-related alumni programming or events. Students and alumni at these events express a strong desire for a permanent organization that brings together Yale's G&P students, undergraduates, and alumni. STAY's creation sprang from the energy, enthusiasm, and passion of Yale students and alumni seeking to foster community in new and powerful ways.
