A Message From Anthony Santiago

Transitional youth just refers to kids, usually those in their teens, who are transitioning from adolescence to adulthood, and are in the foster care system. So transitional youth and foster youth are essentially interchangeable terms. Without the proper resources, foster kids are more likely to not receive a college degree-only 3% of all foster youth graduate college. Compare that with national rates of roughly 40% of the population having a degree. Transitional youth may lack the information necessary to know what they should do to make college more attainable. 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. This 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.

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!
