Over the past 25 years, nearly 300 people have participated in HKLI. In the past, after the program was complete, the alumni would do what was intended from the program—they would take on leadership roles in the community, and their official relationship with the Harry Kay Leadership Institute would come to an end.
We have realized, however, that in actuality, the job of developing community leaders was far from finished.
We believe that a strong Jewish community relies on collaboration and that maintaining leaders’ relationships with one another is an integral part of fueling such collaboration.
We created the Harry Kay Alumni Network as an opportunity for alumni to re-engage with each other during leadership summits, salons, reunions, and other programs.
