Who attends an Idealist Grad Fair?

The Idealist Grad Fairs attract prospective students who are interested in programs that will help further their careers in the social sector.

Attendees include people who are at different stages in their careers: professionals, recent college grads, current members and alumni of service corps (such as Peace Corps and AmeriCorps), interns, and current undergraduates.

The average number of attendees at our in-person fairs is between 350-400, but the numbers vary depending on the size of the city. At our largest events in New York and Washington D.C. we regularly see over 1000 attendees. We expect the virtual Fairs this year to allow an even greater number of prospective students to attend.
