Student Alumni Ambassadors

Student Alumni Ambassadors (SAA) are student leaders whose mission is to bridge the gap between alumni and current students through regional engagement, professional development, fostering leadership, building a culture of philanthropy, educating peers, and instilling pride and tradition for York College. This happens through networking and engagement opportunities including Dinner with Spartans, regional networking receptions, and site visits to alumni places of work. SAA also works to educate their fellow students about the importance of being active and involved alumni who give back to their alma mater whether through their time, their talent, and/or their treasure. 

Members will have exclusive opportunities to these benefits:

  • Network with potential employers for internships or jobs
  • Access to high-level alumni and administration
  • Travel to different regions across the country for events
  • Learn key networking and professional skills 
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Create new traditions that foster pride for York College

SAA does not have leadership positions but instead views each Ambassador as a leader who has a voice in making decisions. 

SAA also houses the YCP Road Crew program. Road Crew is a hand-selected group of outstanding student representatives of York College who travel during winter break to various regions up and down the East Coast visiting alumni companies and exclusively networking with alumni in their chosen field of study. 

Applications to become an Ambassador are open for the 2019 Fall Semester. For full consideration, please apply by Friday, September 20, 2019, by NOON at the link below.

    Foundational Pillars

    Five Foundational Pillars

    1. Regional Engagement: Attend events with alumni including dinners, receptions, and networking programs, and visit alumni at their places of work. The selected YCP Road Crew will travel to engage regional alumni in the same way.

    2. Leadership and Professional Development: Engage in leadership development activities such as an annual retreat, monthly meetings, and select training opportunities such as resume building workshops. SAA members will be paired with an alumni mentor and have unique opportunities to interact with the Board of Trustees and attend select donor events.

    3. Philanthropy: Create awareness across campus on the importance of philanthropic giving, help to develop gratitude for the impact of gifts made, and cultivate a culture of giving. SAA members will also help the Advancement Office to properly thank students, alumni, and friends who make a gift or donate their time or talent to York College.

    4. Pride and Tradition: Instill a sense of pride and tradition among alumni and current students by assisting with legacy events, reunions, and Fall Fest and Homecoming weekend. SAA will have the opportunity to establish new traditions as well.

    5. Peer Education: Spread awareness of the importance of philanthropic giving and alumni engagement through peer-to-peer education, participating as a social media ambassador, and assisting with campus pop-up philanthropy programs.
