Yale Day of Service
In May of every year, the Yale Club of Houston coordinates efforts for alumni in the Greater Houston area to give back to our great community. On one weekend, our chapter, along with alumni clubs around the world, participate in a tradition called the Yale Day of Service. Below is an excerpt from the AYA's official website.
Feed the hungry...tutor children...restore a park...read to the blind...build a Habitat home...and so much more.
Last year, over 3,500 Yale alumni and friends came together to work side-by-side in service all over the world. At more than 180 sites in 35 states and 13 countries, members of the Yale community embodied the University's great tradition of service in giving back. Local communities were changed by the Yale alumni who live and work there.The tradition of service is rooted in Yale’s past… but perhaps it is more relevant today than ever. There are few traditions as important to Yale alumni as service to others. We know you want to give back, not only to Yale, but also to your community.

We hope you will be a part of this important and meaningful program. Join other members of the Yale community who come together to help change the world one day at a time!
