The Yakima Valley College Alumni Association was established in 1977 to help graduates maintain an interest in YVC and to keep them informed of the progress and policies of the college. In addition, the group worked to aid YVC in initiating and promoting activities that were in the best interest of the institution.
The YVC Alumni Association is dedicated to providing alumni with new and exciting ways to connect with their alma mater and with other alumni. The association, governed by a volunteer board of directors, works to promote a close relationship between alumni and the college.
