14th Annual UCLA UniCamp Camp-A-Thon!

About This Campaign

In the midst of our UCLA UniCamp Student Volunteer's nearly 100 hours of training, they somehow manage to find time to fundraise at least $500 each with fellow UCLA UniCamp Student Volunteers. Please join us in sponsoring these students. All proceeds from this event go towards sending under-served youth to camp this summer. The student’s goal this year is to raise $290,000. This will help UCLA UniCamp give over 1,300 campers a summer camping experience. Join us in this great cause. UCLA UniCamp is a tradition at UCLA that is entering its 80th summer of camp. Every year there are hundreds of underserved children that may not be dreaming of a bright future. Help us provide these kids with the tools to change their stars and give them the chance to dream big and succeed. Thank you in advance for your interest and your generosity!

    Hello All, I have the pleasure of getting to volunteer my time over the summer to work as a camp counselor for UCLA's Unicamp. Unicamp is a non-profit organization centered on promoting college to under-represented youth. This session I am working is geared towards promoting college for urban, African American youth, from disadvantaged backgrounds. The goal is to teach about the culture and promote unity throughout the diaspora. We plan to do this, while still encouraging these youth to empower themselves through higher education.
    We are planning on making it a great week, however we need the help and support from you first: friends, family, colleagues, professors. The average cost for a week at camp, per camper is only $100. Since these youth already come from lower income backgrounds, we are trying to cover their expenses for camp. The goal for each counsellor, is to raise over $500 for camp. This just means so much to me personally, because coming from an under-represented background and making it here at UCLA, I understand the institutional barriers which stand in the way of these youth. They are already at a disadvantage, and trying to succeed in a system working against you, is a challenge.
    What were trying to do is grant them with an opportunity to change their outlook on life, and instill in them the importance of higher education. I'd really love if any of you can help in anyway, even if you only can contribute $5 or even $1 dollars. It is a tax deductible and 100% of the proceeds to towards camp expenditures. I am inviting you all to help these disadvantaged youth empower themselves through knowledge.
