Congratulations, Class of 2017 – Senior Spotlights

May 26th, 2017

Each year, the Volunteer Center is fortunate to work with students from diverse backgrounds who share a love for service and community engagement. This spring, the Center celebrates the graduating seniors who have contributed to its programs and outreach efforts.


Student staff are an integral part of the UCLA Volunteer Center team. From leading service projects to promoting opportunities through the website and social media, students working in the office provide vital knowledge of campus and student interests. In the past year, the Center’s student staff has contributed greatly to many existing programs, making them more effective and inspiring for participants.

Fellows increase the accessibility of community service and civic engagement opportunities by creating and promoting resources and projects for campus service organizations and students. This year, the Fellows worked on a variety of projects, including managing student volunteers on UCLA Volunteer Day, coordinating the annual Fall Harvest Feast, serving as Operation Gratitude campus ambassadors, and planning a large celebratory picnic during Volunteer Appreciation Week.
