SAY YES BUFFALO ALUMNI NETWORK

The Say Yes Buffalo Alumni Network aims to connect with former Buffalo Public and Charter School graduates who have graduated with a college degree or program certificate since our launch in 2013. The goal is to connect with as many alumni as possible in an effort to continue their pipeline to Say Yes Buffalo, from kindergarten to career.
