Student COmmunity

Our student community is CITY’s most important asset. Our Student Advisory Board, composed of students nominated from all of the schools on Yale’s campus, works alongside our team to steer CITY’s mission. Our board members play key roles in the decision-making process for CITY programs and policies, providing feedback on ongoing work and highlighting student perspectives.

We also hire dozens of students each year to lead our programs, events, and activities. These students include:

  • Innovation Advisors, who are graduate students who help run our Accelerators and act as product managers and coaches for our start-up teams

  • Coordinators and Associates, who help manage and lead our programs, events, and ongoing projects

  • Ambassadors, who are Yale College students who promote CITY to their communities and help run day-to-day logistics
