UCLA’s I’m Going to College program is a program that provides Southern California youth with the opportunity to experience the excitement and tradition of UCLA Athletics while providing them with an understanding of the importance of high education.
r Upon arrival at the event (2-3 hours before the game), groups are greeted by a current UCLA student and led to the IGTC college fair area. Students are immediately immersed in Bruin traditions, as they learn the UCLA Eight Clap and the importance of higher education. While at the college fair, students speak with academic counselors and pick up educational information about questions they may have regarding education and preparing for college.
r Our volunteers play a huge part in providing our participants with the overall collegiate experience. All will help lead campus tours, run games, paint faces and answer questions students may have about UCLA and college in general.
The event will start at 10am and we will need all volunteers on site at 9am until 12pm. From there all participants and volunteers can go into the gymnastics meet and watch the competition.
