10th Annual UCLA Volunteer Day

In 2009, more than 5,000 first-year students, staff, faculty and alumni took part in the first UCLA Volunteer Day, the largest one-day service event in UCLA’s history. On Saturday, Sept. 29, UCLA celebrates the 10th anniversary of this milestone event by bringing together more Bruins for more volunteer events in more places than ever before. Join this tradition by choosing a project that speaks to your passions, then sign up to put your skills to work.
