UCLA's Latino Alumni Association needs a few good Bruins.

UCLA's Latino Alumni Association needs a few good Bruins.

In the pilot year of our OrgullOSO mentorship program for our scholarship recipients, ULAA is offering a series of events targeted to students' needs and development. The focus for winter quarter is career readiness and we can't do this without YOU!

You are cordially invited to attend the Networking Power Hour portion of the inaugural OrgullOSO Career Day. After brushing up their resumés and self-presentation skills, OrgullOSO scholars will practice networking with alumni they've never met - that means you.

This portion of the program will familiarize students with making connections in an open space, get them to practice their elevator pitches and break out of their comfort zones. If you'd like to help a new Bruin grow toward being a smart and savvy young professional, see the details below:

Sunday, Feb. 26
12:30 - 2 p.m.
James West Alumni Center
