The AACC is launching a new Life After Yale Alumni Dinner and Mentorship Series to bring alumni back to Yale’s campus to informally connect with students over delicious food!
Dinners will happen approximately once every two months, each focusing on a different career. AACC hopes to bring together 3-4 alumni, 3-4 graduate students, and 10-15 undergraduate students to connect over relaxed but meaningful dinner conversations about various career fields and life after Yale. Each dinner will be a starting point for a mentorship program (the first of its kind – low commitment) , through which alumni and students will connect once or twice a semester through coffee chats, phone calls, or meet-ups as schedules may permit.
If interested, please take a moment to fill out THIS FORM.
The series will start with a dinner focusing on Public Health, to be held late March or early April. Ensuing dinners will focus on entrepreneurship, law, medicine, education, and a variety of other fields.
Celebrate the Year of the Snake!
