One Bus, One Cause

Using the momentum and enthusiasm for civic engagement that arises from Volunteer Day, One Bus, One Cause projects send a bus filled with up to 50 UCLA staff, faculty, students, alumni and community volunteers into the LA community in order to address specific needs in that area.

Through partnerships with other nonprofits and outside organizations, this program addresses a different cause and organization with each visit to expose Bruin volunteers to a sampling platter of volunteer opportunities and to pique volunteers’ interest in programs they could work with on an ongoing basis.

Looking for ways to participate with One Bus, One Cause? Here are a few ideas:
