The Rabun Gap Young Alumni Network (YAN) is a group founded by a council of young alumni seeking to promote the interests of Rabun Gap and establish a global network of young alumni that are engaged with one another as well as the current staff and student body of the Rabun Gap community.

The YAN will keep young alumni informed with what's going on at Rabun Gap, its faculty, and other Young Alumni.  We will provide a place for YAN members to reconnect and network.  We will sponsor projects and campaigns to benefit Rabun Gap and its students.  Additionally, we will host events regionally and at Alumni Reunion Weekend.

All attendees and employees of Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School who attended or worked at Rabun Gap within the last 25 years are invited to join. 

Ways to Get Involved

List of 5 items.

  • Alumni Panels

    Participate in our regular virtual meet-up with current RGNS students to share your experiences in life outside the gap from the college selection process to your current career path.  Alumni Skype in from around the world to share their Rabun Gap experiences and the decisions they’ve made since graduation.
  • Be a Class Representative

    We are looking for a few members from each class to serve as Class Representatives by reaching out to your classmates and letting them know about the YAN and our 100 Days Campaign. Let us know at YAN@rabungap.org.
  • Join the YAN Advisory Board

    Volunteer to serve as a member of the YAN Advisory Board to assist the Executive Committee in coordinating special events, alumni programming, community engagement and alumni-led initiatives.  E-mail YAN@rabungap.org for more information.
  • Young Alumni Mentoring

    As Young Alumni, we can all remember leaving the familiar comforts of Rabun Gap and going out on our own. YAN is starting a Mentoring Program to connect recent Rabun Gap graduates with Young Alumni in their geographical area and/or career path.

    Do you have time for a cup of coffee, or an email to reach out to a new Rabun Gap graduate? That's all it takes. Email YAN@rabungap.org to learn more.
  • Adopt-A-Dorm

    Do you remember eating dining hall food every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; breakfast, lunch, and dinner; breakfast, lunch, and dinner?  Do you remember what it was like for someone to bring your dorm homemade treats or store-bought goods?  While many alumni may argue that the "kids these days" don't appreciate how good the dining hall food is now, dorm students at Rabun Gap still appreciate receiving a taste of home. Contact Jennifer Hudgins '86 at shudgins1@windstream.net for more information or to join the Adopt-A-Dorm program.
