When students experience real community it is life-changing. Yi and Martin describe the difference it makes to be part of an inclusive and safe group, where they feel held and supported by others who know and care about them. This even influenced Yi’s decision about which school to attend for her graduate studies. Our work has expanded over the past few years to include graduate students and we’ve added programs specifically for them. Graduate students often feel a sense of isolation and, as Martin shares, creating community where they can connect with their peers in meaningful ways is transformative. Thank you for your support as we create community that changes lives!
