YASC 2013 Trips

Nicaragua, March 16-23: The Yale Alumni Service Corps invites you – alumni, family, and friends – to Trohilo, Nicaragua, a village near New Haven’s own sister city of Leon. This service trip, in partnership with the Yale School of Nursing, is an opportunity for you to serve on projects designed around your skills and interests – you can teach children in the village school, care for patients in the medical clinic, coach sports to eager young athletes, work on construction projects, or share your business skills with small business owners. You will work side by side with the people of Trohilo as they strive to improve the quality of their lives. You will build cross cultural understanding and make friends for life. They want to meet you!

West Virginia, June 26-30We are very excited to announce our first domestic service program in rural West Virginia. In partnership with the innovative program College Summit – founded by Yale alum J.B. Schramm ’86 – we will spend 4 days preparing high school students for college by tutoring them in essay writing, reviewing the college application process, and coaching them in leadership skills. We will live with the students – for many their first time away from home and from families who have never had the opportunity to attend college ‑ in dorms on the campuses of Marshall University in Huntington and West Virginia Institute of Technology in Montgomery.

Ghana, August 1-10: We did it! Last summer more than 150 alumni and their family and friends participated in a life changing – their lives and ours – service project in Yamoransa, Ghana, and the village wants us back! We invite you to serve this community and experience Ghanaian culture with your family and friends in a truly unique and inspiring manner.
