Each year Posse comes closer to realizing its long-term goal of changing the face of leadership in the United States. The ultimate goal is to build a brand new kind of professional leadership network, one that this country has never seen before, and one that will more accurately represent the demographics of the nation. Posse alumni come from the nation’s largest urban public school systems and graduate from top colleges and universities. As they assume positions of leadership, they will reflect the concerns, values and dreams of all Americans.
To best serve its alumni, The Posse Foundation established programming with four primary components: 1) The Posse National Alumni Advisory Council (PNAAC), 2) Graduate School Affiliates, 3) The National Posse Alumni Leadership Conference, and 4) The Posse Scholar/Alumni Portal.
Posse National Alumni Advisory Council
The Posse National Alumni Advisory Council (PNAAC) comprises 16 alumni representing all Posse sites. PNAAC was established to support alumni by providing continued leadership and professional development opportunities. PNAAC also works to further relationships between alumni and the Foundation and to encourage philanthropy, leadership and networking within the alumni community.
