YAAA Career Connections

2018 Holiday Party Recap

On December 14, YAAA held its annual Holiday Social at 50s on Fitch in New Haven. It was a celebratory event which culminated a year of service, professional development, and fellowship within the Yale community. The theme of the social was bridging community. YAAA appreciates the hospitality from 50s on Fitch, proprietor Joy Monsanto, a new business in the Westville community.

YAAA Fall Social Recap

Thank you to everyone that was able to join us for our  Fall Social. We enjoyed good music by The Rahsaan Langley Project, food and conversation with both familiar and new people. We look forward to other opportunities to support black owned businesses, and welcome your feedback and help planning the next social event.
