One Day for You/One Day for SYA

This campaign ended on April 23, 2020, but you can still make a gift to School Year Abroad by clicking here!


Last year, One Day for SYA was one of our favorite days of the year, showcasing the incredible love and commitment our alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents and friends have for our school. This year, One Day for You celebrates the incredible strength of community we’ve seen throughout this challenging time. Social distancing has our students, families, faculty and staff learning and working from home, but SYAers across the globe continue to create meaningful, relevant and engaging opportunities to connect with one another around our shared mission. 

We wouldn’t be able to do our work without you, and now the impact of this global health crisis makes our need to rely on each other even greater. SYA Fund gifts of all amounts have provided unrestricted, flexible funding to ensure SYA can meet the unique needs of our students, families and faculty. Going forward, the SYA Fund will be especially important as we face economic uncertainty and evolve to keep our community together through need-based financial aid, innovative curriculum development and advanced technology infrastructure. Thank you for your support!

Here's how to participate in #SYADayforyou:

  • Follow along throughout the day on SYA's Instagram and Facebook pages to participate in our fun hourly themes: SYA Trivia, Faculty & Staff Appreciation, SYA Book Club, SYA From Home, SYA International Kitchen and At Home in the World.
  • Share a story of how you are using your SYA skills right now - whether it be a creative contribution to keeping communities virtually connected, or sharing time, effort and resources with people in need.
  • Create a video message or write a message about why you love and support SYA, or share words of encouragement with our students and faculty.
  • Support SYA students and faculty with a gift to the SYA Fund!
