NSLI-Y Alumni Association

The NSLI-Y Alumni Association invites past participants of NSLI-Y to engage with each other and build upon their enthusiasm for foreign languages and cultures. The association supports NSLI-Y alumni from the program’s inception in 2006 through the present, by fostering a strong network and providing resources for continued development. The association is led by volunteer NSLI-Y Alumni Representatives who are responsible for engaging alumni in their respective regions across the United States in events and opportunities pertaining to continued language learning, professional development, networking, and community service. The association strives to serve and support all NSLI-Y alumni.
