Young Alumni Club
The Saint Ignatius Young Alumni Club (YAC) serves to bond Ignatius graduates from the previous two decades with their educational institution and its Catholic beliefs. YAC and its committee work to create, support and promote relevant and meaningful programs that foster community, service and the Ignatian spirit.
Are you a more recent Ignatius graduate, looking for ways to reconnect with former classmates and the school? Are you interested in helping coordinate and/or participate in fun events for other young alumni? Look no further! If you have questions about participating in upcoming YAC events or would like to be more involved by joining the YAC committee, please contact YAC@ignatius.org or watch the Wolves' Den for news.
You can also become financially supportive by joining the Young President's Club for $1,500 (President's Club membership usually requires a committment of $2,500). You may make your gift all at once or pledged over several months. As a result, you will receive Fr. Paulson's quarterly newsletter and most importantly, you will be helping a deserving youngster attend Saint Ignatius! To become a member of the Young President's Club click below!
Annual YAC Events
The annual Jesuit Cup event is held the night of the Saint Ignatius vs. Loyola Academy varsity basketball game. A great time always follows at the post game party and all proceeds go to the Saint Ignatius Tuition Assistance Program.
Young Alumni- Bears vs. Packers Event!!
Tim Swindle '98 and Zach Abraham '96 hosted a Young Alumni event to cheer on the Chicago Bears as they face the Green Bay Packers on September 13, 2012. Many of our young alumni attended and all proceeds benefited the Saint Ignatius Tuition Assistance Program. Thanks to all who attended!
This past summer, the YAC sponsored a volunteer day at Maternity BVM, a Big Shoulders elementary school. The young alumni help the teachers and staff prepare the school for the new year. The YAC also has an annual presence at the Puttin' on the Ritz Auction and the Gentile Golf Classic.
