IMPACT & TESTIMONIALS
Since being founded in university dorm rooms, over 5,500 undergraduates from 300 universities worldwide have participated in one or more MCN programs. MCN alumni have gone on to work at the United Nations, USAID, and launched their own social enterprises. Our most recent alumni survey revealed that 83% of MCN alumni are working in social impact careers, with over 6/10 sharing that MCN programming definitively prepared them for success in their work. As one example, Toby Norman was recently named a Schwab Foundation Social Entrepreneur of the Year at 28 years old; explore his story and the impact of MCN here.
As the network grows, our goal is to track alumni over time - 6 months, two years, five years post-graduation - and continue to prove that success in social impact careers can be tied to success in MCN programs. In the immediate term, we track growth of the organizations our Millennium Fellows lead on campuses across 6 Key Performance Indicators. In Year Three of the Fellowship, organizations went on average from 1.69/10 ("start ups") to 7.41/10 ("functional") - meaning clearer goals, stronger teams, and deeper impact on campus and with community. Our student leaders are better prepared for careers in the social sector with the values and skills needed to excel.
Below is a snapshot of what some recent Millennium Fellows and Delegates learned through MCN programs.
