We currently have branches in NYC, Boston, Chicago, Washington D.C., San Francisco, and London.

Our local branches are an opportunity for alums living in major cities to connect with fellow alums in their area, build community, participate in social activities and services projects, and engage with environmental and sustainability issues that are unique to their area.

Our goal is to launch new branches in cities (in the U.S. and overseas) that have a significant population of Yalies who connect with YBG’s mission.

We can provide all the tools and support you need to start a branch in your city.  Generally, we suggest having 2-4 co-chairs per branch to share the responsibilities, and we can put you in touch with other alums who have expressed interest in creating a branch in your area.

Please email YBG Chair Lauren Graham, F&ES ’13 at to get started.  You will be in great company!
