Virtual discussion with the DC Community Service Summer Fellows!

August 26, 2020

About the Event: The Yale Club and Yale Alumni Nonprofit Alliance (YANA) of Washington, D.C., along with 1stGenYale, hosted a virtual event to meet the 2020 DC Community Service Summer Fellows! Each year, the Yale Club of Washington, D.C. awards Community Service Summer Fellowships to current Yale undergraduates, who spend the summer interning at nonprofit organizations in the Washington metropolitan area.

The program is fully funded by the Yale Club at no cost to the participating nonprofits, thanks to support from Yale community members like you. In this virtual event, participants will learn about YANA, the Yale Club of D.C. Summer Fellowship program, and the service projects that this summer’s three interns completed working remotely for the Capital Area Food Bank, DC Youth Orchestra, and A Wider Circle.
