The goal of this program is to celebrate the strength and diversity of the 11,000-strong family of U. S. alumni, or #AlumniAS, currently living and working in Indonesia through a series of #AlumniAS Networking Nights in major cities.
The Networking Nights will provide an opportunity for alumni
to meet and support one another while also familiarizing themselves with the broad array of Embassy programming opportunities to volunteer, mentor, participate in additional programs, apply for scholarships, and more.
A networking night will provide the following components:
opportunity to hear from prominent alumni living or working in the host city, whether through short presentations or panel discussions; the opportunity to socialize with other participants over light refreshments; displays featuring information on U. S. Embassy and Consulate programming opportunities and study in the United States staffed by U. S. Embassy and Consulate employees; optional, interactive games or “speed dating” style networking activities led by the implementing partner.
Events should incorporate Visibly American branding (with a U. S. flag image) and a networking series logo.
Participants and Audiences:
Participants must be alumni either of a U. S. government-sponsored program or a U. S. institution of higher education, ideally those who live and/or work in the same metropolitan area as the event they are attending.
The implementing partner will work together with the Alumni Coordinator at the U. S. Embassy in Jakarta, who will take primary responsibility for distributing invitations through the Embassy’s alumni mailing list and publicizing the invitation on social media via Embassy social media properties.
U. S. Embassy or Consulate staff will attend each event.
