A Message From Melissa Chan

Hey everyone!
This summer I have been given the amazing opportunity to be a part of UCLA UniCamp, one of the largest student-run organizations on campus, providing underprivileged youth with a week of summer camp. I will be spending this week with high school students from Project Grad LA, working with them on programs related to our theme of College Readiness.
These high schoolers come from low-income backgrounds and many have faced hardships that children should not have to experience. This week of camp could be life-changing for them. I have heard inspiring stories of both campers and counselors for whom this one week in the summer was the best thing that ever happened. Up at camp, they can be whoever they want. Campers become confident, compassionate and they find in themselves the courage to achieve their dreams. I have had the privilege and fortune of spending the best four years of my life at UCLA. As I graduate, I find it fitting to spend my last summer helping inspire students and showing them that college is an opportunity they can have.
Each counselor is required to raise $500 to subsidize the cost for the campers. Donations are tax-deductible and any amount helps!! So, I would appreciate it so so much if you could help me help these high-schoolers believe in themselves and that they can achieve their dreams too.
Love,
Melissa

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!
