Volunteer Day 2017 was UCLA’s ninth annual new student service event. First year freshmen and transfer students were joined by 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.

There are many ways to give back to the community. In addition to coordinating a large day of service, the UCLA Volunteer Center works year round to offer and promote volunteer opportunities to the Bruin community.
