When FLEX participants return, the program isn’t over. On the contrary, their return marks the beginning of a new life full of opportunities and experiences because FLEX participants return as members of the active FLEX alumni family!
FLEX alumni have a chance to implement their skills and knowledge they have acquired in the United States and help their communities. The FLEX Alumni Coordinator supports FLEX alumni to find friends with similar interests and attain their goals — personally and professionally. FLEX alumni have opportunities to participate in professional development seminars and trainings, volunteer activities, social events and holiday celebrations. These opportunities are the first steps to becoming the Future Leaders of the Kyrgyz Republic.
FLEX alumni are eligible to join the U.S. State Alumni website, which is designed for alumni of U.S. government-sponsored programs, including FLEX. Here they can find out more about job and grant opportunities, as well as connect with other alumni. Among other things, the website has a calendar of upcoming alumni events.
The FLEX Alumni Coordinator keeps track of the contact information for alumni in order to keep them up-to-date on volunteer and development opportunities and to distribute the quarterly alumni newsletter called The Bradley Herald (www.bradleyherald.org).
Upcoming alumni events are posted on the FLEX Alumni Kyrgyzstan Facebook community. Alumni success stories can also be found there as well as on this website.
