Volunteer Leadership Awards
The Volunteer Leadership Awards are presented by the Babson Alumni Association (BAA) annually in the fall, during Reunion and Homecoming weekend.
Through the Volunteer Leadership Awards, the BAA looks to reward alumni, parents, friends and faculty and staff who have actively given their time and talent to the Babson Community. The Volunteer Leadership Awards increase their recognition in the community and put them in touch with other leaders. We count on the nominations of others to ensure that all worthy are considered for these prestigious awards.
