Employee and Staff Opportunities

Posted on November 29th, 2015

As leaders in the UCLA community, university employees can serve as outstanding examples for student participation in service on campus, in the Los Angeles community, and in the world. To promote the True Bruin value of service, faculty and staff can work alongside students on many of the opportunities the UCLA Volunteer Center offers including One Bus, One Cause, Volunteer Day, and Three Pillars, One University.

Serve on UCLA Volunteer Day

Faculty and staff members can volunteer alongside all incoming students, as well as external community members, at UCLA’s annual Volunteer Day in September. For a more involved leadership role, consider becoming a Volunteer Day Project Leader. Leaders assist the Center in the planning of one of the project sites, working closely with a community partner to ensure the service is successful.

Attend a One Bus, One Cause Project

The Center’s One Bus, One Cause program sends a group of volunteers to complete a specific service project within the Los Angeles area. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for staff members looking to volunteer with a small group of colleagues or for individuals who wish to meet like-minded volunteers from the UCLA community.

Support Students with Special Needs through Three Pillars, One University

Three Pillars, One University aims to bring the cutting edge research of the university community to students with special needs. With a symposium style approach, the program aims to fulfill the University’s three pillars of Education, Research, and Service. If you are a member of UCLA’s faculty or have a career that aligns with the topic of an upcoming Three Pillars, One University event and would like to be a speaker, please email

Find a Group Opportunity

Engage with other members of your staff through volunteerism! Consider the Volunteer Center’s Group Opportunities list. Whether you are looking for a staff retreat, bonding event, or to connect with others, one time and recurring opportunities are available.

Become a Pen Pal to a Project SPELL Learner

Project SPELL is a Volunteer Center program that matches UCLA employee learners with student volunteer tutors to accomplish the learner’s English language learning goals. Pen pals communicate weekly via email, allowing the learner to work on writing and computer literacy skills. Sign up for a quarterly pen pal role, and take advantage of end-of-quarter reunions to meet your pen pal in person.
