The NYSF has created a new online social destination, NYSF Collaboratory, to help connect alumni, presenters, staff, and donors who support the mission of the NYSF to inspire lifelong engagement and ethical leadership in STEM.

Use the NYSF Collaboratory to:

  • Connect: Engage old friends and make new as you connect with NYSCamp delegates, staff, and presenters from yesterday and today.
  • Mentor: Further the mission of the NYSF by providing knowledge, advice, and career development resources to current students, delegates, staff, and recent alumni.
  • Expand: Broaden your professional STEM network by connecting with others who share similar educational background, passion, and experience.
  • Engage: Remain an active member of the NYSF community by sharing photos, information and updates, interacting with others, and attending alumni social and professional events.

You can join the NYSF Collaboratory with your own E-mail address or existing LinkedIn or Facebook account; you control your own privacy settings. The NYSF will distribute invitations to alumni using information currently held in the NYSF’s alumni database; you can join now at

Once you establish your NYSF Collaboratory profile you can connect with fellow alumni for professional advice, find local alumni through the online directory, seek or offer career mentorship, share photos from your personal collection, and engage with groups based when you participated in a NYSF program. Using the NYSF Collaboratory directory, you can search for individuals based on one or more criteria, including geographical area, career field, program attendance, participation year, among many others.

The NYSF Collaboratory is pre-populated with groups and events, but you can create your own as well. The NYSF and NYSCamp Alumni Association are working together to ensure that the NYSF Collaboratory continues to serve the needs of both organizations.
