Serve on the Alumni Board

The purpose of the New Sector Alliance Alumni Board is to engage with the alumni community; provide New Sector with alumni experience-based recommendations regarding programming, growth and vision; and serve as active New Sector ambassadors to local partner organizations, academic institutions and program participants. Members of the alumni board can serve at cohort leads, city leads, or take on a variety of leadership opportunities to advance the New Sector mission. Alumni board members help pass on information from New Sector to their cohorts or alumni based in cities across the globe, including program updates, calls for volunteers, fundraising appeals, and opportunities to engage with New Sector.

New Sector Alliance Alumni Board member applications are accepted in September each year.
