ABOUT THE YGL
A Global Network of Innovators, Entrepreneurs, and Leaders
The Young Global Leaders are among a select group of Northeastern alumni who represent the international reach of our beloved Huntington Avenue campus. Living in countries big and small, the YGL are charged with the unique responsibility of fostering Northeastern’s connections around the globe. They are President Joseph E. Aoun’s go-to representatives of our home countries, sharing our perspectives, supporting strategic initiatives, and hosting VIP gatherings.
This year, the YGL endeavors to further strengthen regional networks, mentor students, host industry-focused business exchanges, and fund high-value initiatives through their combined philanthropy in the YGL Impact Fund.
The YGL consists of 126 members hailing from 49 countries
