is dedicated to helping you realize just how important
and relevant SB/BT can be to your lives today.
Our Alumni Communities team led by Amy Walia-Fazio, this
week's featured board member, has been instrumental in linking
alumni to one another across the country from different
programs and years as well as in reestablishing the
connection between alumni and existing programs. In
these weekly e-newsletters, we will continue
to update you on events that are taking place around the
network. If there are no events taking place in your
backyard, we invite you to organize your own events
to help SBAN connect and inspire leaders.

As the Director of Alumni
Communities, Amy leads a team whose goal is to create
new behavior among alumni because SBAN believes it is not
enough for alumni to think of Summerbridge or Breakthrough as
something from their distant past. Instead,
SBAN wants you to think of the organization as highly
relevant to your lives today. To accomplish this, the
Alumni Communities team develops
tools and systems to facilitate the organization of regional
events that bring alumni together. They
also provide individual coaching and ongoing support to
see your region represented? Contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org
