Nearly 4,000 Yale University alumni participated in the eighth annual Yale Day of Service program, joining together to make difference in their local communities across the United States and around the world. The program included 250 sites throughout 40 states and 20 countries, even more than in 2015.
Most of the activities took place on May 7, although alumni projects organized through the Day of Service program were also held earlier, and there are opportunities still available at some sites throughout May.

This year, more than 130 alumni, faculty, students, and staff from the Yale School of Public Health volunteered around New Haven and nearby towns on May 7, giving back to the community in honor of Dean Paul Cleary, who is retiring after 10 years of leadership at the school.
