Through national and regional events of the YAV alum network, we hope to strengthen the support and community which is unique to YAV participants. We also want to provide the opportunity for recently returned YAVs to find support from those who have "been there" during their time of adjusting to post-YAV life through the deacon program, which connects older YAV alumni with YAV who have recently ended their time of service. For more information about the YAV alumni network and how you can be involved, visit the YAV alum blog.

Support the YAV Alum Community

All of the funds given will go toward lowering the cost that each YAV has to raise for their year of service. Give now

Where are they now?

More than 700 YAV alums live in the United States, and some live in other places in the world. Use this Google map to find them. The locations of some of our alumni are listed here.

Don’t see yourself on this map? If you’re an alum of the YAV program and would like your location to be listed on the map, email the YAV office  your name, year, place of service and current location.

Please let us know if it’s okay to use your story for promotional material or publication. Email your story to the YAV office.
