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.
