YEA seeks to enable the action needed to make the world a better place by leveraging the many resources, opportunities and privileges that students at Yale have. Effective altruism is a global intellectual community of people trying to figure out how to improve the world as much as possible. We host social events, discussions with professors, weekly discussion groups, and an immersive 'Fellowship Program', which is aimed at helping our members build their plans for how they will help improve the world.

This board structure aims to provide opportunities to diversify your engagement while clearly defining duties. Therefore, we encourage some people to take on multiple roles.

How to apply
This is a rolling board application. After you fill out this form you will hear back from an organizer if it has been accepted for an on-boarding meeting where you two will determine what would be best for you to work on.

We are committed to building a diverse board. Evidence suggests that underprivileged individuals tend to underestimate their abilities. We do not want the application process to dissuade potential candidates and we strongly encourage interested students to apply regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, ability, etc. We also encourage both undergraduate, graduate and professional students, as well as individuals from all intellectual backgrounds and majors to apply.
