2016 Volunteer Day

On Monday, September 19, 2016, Bruins participated in the eighth annual Volunteer Day by giving service at community partner sites across Los Angeles.

Community Partners & Projects

Volunteer Day 2016 was UCLA’s eighth annual new student service event. First year freshmen and transfer students joined together with continuing undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and community members to visit sites across greater Los Angeles. In every city council district, volunteers performed service at schools, parks, shelters, senior centers, veterans’ facilities, community gardens, food banks, and many other community locations.

Learn about the Center’s past Volunteer Day full roster of community partners by browsing the impact map at https://volunteer.ucla.edu/impact-map. Each site was uniquely chosen based on suggestions from the Bruin community and existing UCLA programs around Los Angeles.
