Young Alumni Leadership Circle (YALC)

Become a Leader for the Next Generation

Leadership Your YALC membership places you in a circle of peers allowing you to network, socialize, and build relationships with current University leadership that can help guide your path to becoming a leader in the next generation. Your generosity makes an impact in the lives of NYU students and supports the success of our University.

Network Connect with NYU trustees, administrators, senior leaders, and young alumni from across the University who can help you identify, refine, and achieve your career goals.

Access The NYU community continues to grow in new and exciting ways. As a member of YALC, you receive special invitations to University events and YALC receptions, giving you more opportunities to grow your network and continue your NYU experience.

The members of YALC make annual contributions to The Fund for NYU and designate their gifts to the school(s) of their choice. Your gift to The Fund for NYU plays a critical role in securing the University’s success. The Fund provides tuition assistance to deserving students, helps recruit and retain renowned faculty, and maintains NYU’s position as one of the leading research universities in the world.

Being a part of YALC allows me to give back to the community that truly set me up for success post-graduation and to ensure that future students find that same success. At the same time, YALC also allows me to help current alumni create new relationships that can lead to collaboration and innovation on the many successful projects that NYU alumni always find themselves a part of.
