Applications Now Open for 2023-24 Class of Young Alumni Ambassadors

The Penn State Alumni Association’s Young Alumni Ambassador program provides young alumni with opportunities to engage with their peers through a curriculum focused on professional and personal development.

Open to Penn State graduates from the graduating classes of August 2022, December 2022 and May 2023, the curriculum will be devoted to enhancing the connections between young alumni, the Penn State Alumni Association, and Penn State.

Participants will develop into confident and capable leaders, feeling inspired to increase their own participation and motivate others to give back to the Alumni Association and the University through volunteerism, membership, and active engagement.

This opportunity will connect recent graduates with award-winning mentors, distinguished speakers, and consistent in-person and virtual engagement experiences beginning in September 2023.

Members of the cohort can expect to learn more about their personal leadership and communication skills and will be encouraged to apply their talents within their local communities, as well as within the larger Penn State community.

Selected candidates can expect the following:

  • Nine-month program that entails monthly, virtual sessions and two, day-long engagement opportunities.
  • Three-day capstone “retreat” program that combines exclusive learning sessions, world-class alumni speakers and University leaders, and hands on learning and coaching.
  • Includes young alumni with a commitment to ensuring the cohort mirrors the diversity of the University.
  • Develop and understand self through a leadership profile.
  • Participate in philanthropic and service projects.
  • Volunteer with an affiliate group.
  • Take part in interactive opportunities to partner with outside stakeholders as deemed appropriate.

Those interested in applying can do so here.

Additional information about the program is available here.

Questions can be directed to the program’s coordinator, Cheryl Bonner at [email protected], and applications are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, June 23.
