A Message From Chelsea Viola

Hey everyone! This year, I am a volunteer for Unicamp, UCLA Students’ official philanthropy that annually links 500 UCLA student volunteers with over 1,200 LA youth from underserved communities. Through the healing power of the wilderness and providing a unique outdoor camping experience, UniCamp delivers challenging new experiences that foster personal growth and transform lives during a week of affordable summer camp.
I am part of the Transitional Youth Empowerment (TYE) session. Transitional youth refers to kids, usually those in their teens, who are transitioning from adolescence to adulthood, and are in the foster care system. Without the proper resources, foster kids are more likely to not receive a college degree-only 3% of all foster youth graduate college. Sometimes individuals may prioritize getting these kids housing over giving them access to resources that help them get good grades, stay in school, and eventually get to college.
With a solid pool of social capital, this can be partially remedied. The TYE session incorporates many different types of programing outside of the normal camp activities to help provide an engaging and fun week of camp, such as scavenger hunts, open mic, self-care workshops, and more.
As a Unicamp volunteer, it is my goal to raise $450 before my session. The money will subsidize the cost of going to camp for the TYE campers and myself. Any contribution, big or small, will be greatly appreciated. Please donate to my Give Effect!

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 student’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!
