Each year in May, Yale University Alumni and friends gather for “Yale Day of Service” in their communities around the world. Specifically, “Service for society is a core Yale tradition, flourishing among students in New Haven and generations of alumni around the country and across the globe. On May 14, thousands of alumni, families and friends will unite in the third global Yale Day of Service, a cornerstone of expanding alumni community service to change lives throughout the world.”
So as an alum wanting to do my part, I volunteered to photograph the event today which was a partnership between the Yale Club of South Florida and the Urban Paradise Guild and took place at the magnificent Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami. This was an extremely well-organized event by: Magda Vergara, Regional Director, YDOS; Karla Gottlieb, Site Coordinator and Sam Van Leer, Executive Director and Founder, Urban Paradise Guild. As you can see from the photographs, Sam was very thorough in teaching us the mission of the Guild, “Our mission is to re-create native habitats in the Urban areas of Miami-Dade County.” And that’s what we worked on today: improving the native habitat at Vizcaya.
I hope to see you all at next year’s Yale Day of Service and enjoy the photos!
