It’s time to reimagine high school alumni programs.

Today’s young alumni are the college and career voices your students need to succeed.

Alumni show what’s possible. And how to get there.



Research shows that alumni engagement provides students with the knowledge and motivation they need to succeed.

Alumni Toolkit is the alumni engagement platform that makes it easy for every educator to recruit, manage, and strategically mobilize their alumni and community partners for their student and program needs.


But don’t take our word for it: here are some findings from the recently completed UC San Diego CREATE and Yankelovich center report: “The educational value of alumni for public high schools


All-Around Engagement

- 76% of the students reported that they gained new knowledge from the events and found them motivating as well.

- 100% of the educators and schools anticipated using alumni more in the future.

- 100% of the alumni said they would come back for more events if/when they were invited.


Impact is Inspiring

- “Educators were excited because they saw their students learning and gaining knowledge, and sometimes even comfort, from interacting with alumni.”

- “‘If they can do it, so can I’ was a frequent response from the high school student participants.”


Momentum Continues

Educators (even busy ones) found the Alumni Toolkit user friendly and easy to implement” and “the Alumni Toolkit catalyzed educators interest in educationally beneficial ways at their schools”


High School alumni are a helpful, often untapped, resource to enhancing low cost, impactful educational programming for U.S. high school students.

“We conclude that two overarching benefits for students were achieved via alumni inspired events: Practical knowledge and Inspiration.” and “that high schools recruiting and using alumni may gain much from adding alumni to their educational practices with little overall costs to themselves.”

The first real benefit is that we’re reconnecting with those students who have come through these four walls and have graduated and moved on. It’s great to reconnect with them and see what they’re doing and have them talk to our students about how their experience here helped them to get through that journey.

Students want to hear about your college and career experience. 

Remember how uncertain you were in high  school?

Whether you’re in a degree program, community college, 4-year college, or in your career- the real-world knowledge and experience you've gained can help a student find their path to success.
