Westwood Organized Meaningful Projects

WOMP, or Westwood Organized Meaningful Projects, is an essential community program in the Westwood Village.

This inspiring day of community improvement projects in Westwood Village and the North Village is a proud Westwood tradition: a collaboration of hundreds of volunteers tackling a host of community improvement projects to enhance the charm of our city for a memorable and rewarding experience. This project is a collaboration of the UCLA Volunteer Center, Westwood Community Council, Westwood Neighborhood Council, Westwood Village Improvement Association, Bruin students and alumni, city officials, merchants, and neighbors.
