What is the Yale Day of Service?

Yale alumni have an unparalleled tradition of service. From Dwight Hall’s student-led community based programs to the highest levels of government service, Yale alumni have risen to the challenge to ‘change the world’, and indeed many are doing just that as volunteers for Yale, or in their professional lives in the nonprofit sector, or by serving on boards of foundations, or as elected officials, or by giving of their intellect and creative energy to volunteer community projects.

The ninth global Yale Day of Service will be held on May 13, 2017, with the goal that Yale alumni around the world will come together on or around that day to serve their local communities. As in the past, this Day of Service will also serve as a celebration of ongoing service by alumni and local Yale clubs as well as a catalyst for new service commitments. It is just one of a number of service opportunities offered by the AYA.
