Passion Into Action

The Yale Latino Alumni Network (YLAN) is an official shared interest group of the Yale Alumni Association. It is run by dedicated volunteers — Yale alumni from around the world. 

YLAN's mission is to serve as a platform and conduit to engage our Latinx and non-Latinx alumni among themselves, with Yale, and their local communities. Equity, empathy, and justice are our basic values.

YLAN hosts a variety of social, cultural, educational, mentoring, volunteer, and family outing events, including Yale Day of Service,  focused on education, mentoring, and community development.

All Yale alumni are welcome to get involved with YLAN.
