The Northeastern University Young Alumni Advisory Board (YAAB) works to empower graduates of the past 10 years and encourage their continued involvement with and support of the university through programs, events, and communications geared toward their interests. Members provide counsel to the Office of Alumni Relations staff on matters of concern to young alumni and provide guidance from a young alumni perspective. Additionally, YAAB members serve as ambassadors of the university through their leadership and by being chief executive connectors (CEC) at alumni events.

YAAB fosters a life of fulfillment and accomplishment by providing insight and creating opportunities that enrich the personal and professional lives of recent graduates.
