Before students attend their first class, first year freshmen and transfers join together with continuing undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and community members to participate in a wide range of community service projects across Los Angeles. Volunteers participate at more than 50 community partner sites in every city council district to provide critical infrastructure, beautification, and mentorship support at K-12 schools, food banks, parks, shelters, senior centers, veterans’ facilities, and neighborhood areas. Participants learn important skills including leadership, task coordination, painting and landscaping, event planning, and more. For some Bruins, this is their first experience in the city of Los Angeles and/or their first time engaging in community service.
