A Message From Amanda Garza
My name is Yoshi (camp name) and I need YOUR help. I currently volunteer at a summer camping program called UCLA Unicamp. It is non-profit organization that helps underserved kids in the general Los Angeles area.
Within the camp, there is an Older Camper Program that specifically encourages teens in the greater Los Angeles area to be leaders at camp and in their communities. Our mission in Unicorps is to provide leadership skills that the campers could use at camp and outside of it. This specific program will teach the campers responsibilities up at camp and to become role models to the Classic Campers.
Along with the journey, the campers are at the age where they will be transitioning from high school to college or have thought about the idea. As volunteers, we are there to provide as much information as possible to help them transition and strive for a higher education while also answering any questions they have about college.
I was a previous camper before and attended this camp for about seven years. This will be my second year volunteering as a counselor and giving back to the community that once helped me. Words can’t describe the feeling and all the memories camp has given me. It’s an experience I wish everyone could enjoy. There is a video below that describes more about what Unicamp is all about. It gives a gist of what we are all passionate about.
Sing Songs. Play Games. Change Lives.
Any donations count!!! It’ll all add up in the long run! Thank you in advance. :)
MWL, Yoshi ❤️
