With nearly 1,400 alumni, our Seminar alumni hail from throughout Massachusetts, and around the world.

We are proud to offer our program to a wonderfully diverse population, from a incredibly wide range of backgrounds.  Some of our most recent classes have included:

In 2018, our graduates included students from the Dominican Republic, South Korea, Singapore, and Haiti who are looking to improve the lives of others… A Philippine-born, Brooklyn raised activist who has been organizing since she was 13 years old… An East Boston basketball coach and volunteer looking to take the next step in her life & career development… A Reverend from Korea who made the trip into the Seminar each week from Amherst, MA… Suffolk University students who are looking for the tools to help mobilize their communities… A National Urban Fellow, seeking her Masters in Public Administration, and… A Hong Kong native with a Masters in Urban Planning

Our 2017 alums included students from as close as Roxbury, to as far away as Kenya, Ethiopia and India, as well as: A home-schooled high-school Junior from Brockton who made the weekly trip into Boston... A clinical Ph.D who grew up in public housing... Other notable grads include: a mother of two, born in the Congo, whose goal is to be a pro-bono lawyer for immigrants… An Chinese-American entrepreneur looking to challenge racial stereotypes… The daughter of Palestinian immigrants who changed career paths after the November 2016 elections, and… A first-generation immigrant from South Korea who has become a respected doctor and leader in the community.

We’re humbled that many of these students have taken the lessons they’ve learned at the Seminar and proceeded to make even greater impacts in their respective communities.
