The Alumni Network was officially launched in 2020, and is a group consisting of past Israeli and Palestianian participants of the Young Leadership Experience. The aim of the Alumni Network is to engage with past participants to exchange ideas, build each other’s networks and offer opportunities.
Being part of the Alumni Network means:
- Receiving a newsletter to stay informed about Alumni Network activities
- Being invited to a biannual think tank
- Being able to participate in events such as networking brunches, workshops or seminars
After a few weeks of preparation, the official Alumni Network Launch took place online on the 6th of September. It was a fun and promising meeting, with regards to the future development of the Network. This alumni meeting will be a recurring event once every year, and is a fun way to (re-)connect with fellow alumni.
On the 19th and 20th of November, the first YPI Think Tank took place: 6 Thinkers came together (online) to brainstorm and to provide input on YPI’s multi-annual strategy for the next five years. It was a very fruitful conference, and we have received the feedback that the participants enjoyed seeing one another and working actively together. The outcomes of the several dialogue sessions are very valuable and the Board of YPI is currently working towards developing and implementing the ideas that were brought forth.
