Global Alumni Engagement
Join your peers and make new connections with the MCW Global Alumni network. This is a place where alumni of our Young Leaders Access Program can share updates on their vision plans, exchange news and views, and stay up to date on events. Most of all, they can maintain our shared MCW Global connection.
Alumni Ventures Fund
The Alumni Ventures Fund offers graduates of our international Young Leaders Access Program a unique opportunity to turn their vision plans into concrete community-based projects with a start-up grant of up to $5,000 and a year of professional mentorship. With 17 recipients since the Fund’s founding in 2009 and $61,000 given in grants, AVF has helped young leaders achieve their personal goals of being changemakers in their communities.
