About Us

From the moment you stepped into your first YIRA information session, you have been part of a community with a rich tradition of providing international relations and educational opportunities to all. That community continues here through the YIRA Alumni Network. Our alumni stretch across the globe engaging in research, peacekeeping, top-level private sector work, public service, and much more. The YIRA Alumni Network (YAN) aims to connect YIRA alumni, support alumni in reaching their goals, provide a platform for alumni to continue contributing to YIRA's mission, and mobilize the power of YIRA alumni to enrich the YIRA experience of current and future members.
