A Message From Ringo Woodsey

The Afrikan proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child," is the guiding principle of the Village Session, where campers celebrate Afrikan American heritage, history, and culture in a safe space that is affirming, appreciative, and nurtures their personal assets. Village elders create an immersive environment for empowerment that strengthens campers' confidence and character on a foundation of culture, community and college-readiness. The Village Session provides access to resources for academic, social, and cultural excellence and develops leadership to advance the legacy of social justice. We celebrate Afrikan culture and connect campers with resources in order to empower them to achieve excellence and become leaders of the black social justice movement.

I'm a first year public affairs major, and entering UCLA, I wanted to engage in a program for underserved communities. Here I am as a camp counselor in the Village Session, which empowers and educates Los Angeles Afrikan American youth on their culture and instills in them the belief to accomplish anything they put their hearts to. Coming from a low-income community and growing up underprivileged myself, I understand how these kids may feel, and I'll show them how to transform their adversity into an asset. From my experience, the preteen and teenage years are times of emotional distress, which adds to the burden of their demographic background. Overcoming and eventually prevailing over some painful bullying situations in my life in middle and high school, I hope my story will be a beacon for these kids to pursue great things they never dreamed of.

Please donate. Anything will do! Show these kids your support for a life-changing week!

17th 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 $450 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 studentโ€™s goal this year is to raise $150,000. This will help UCLA UniCamp give over 1,000 campers a summer camping experience. Join us in this great cause. UCLA UniCamp is a tradition at UCLA that is entering its 83rd 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!
