How can I get involved?

10 ways to get involved with UCLA Latino Alumni Association.

  1. Attend an event. By attending an event you can get information from current board members. In turn, we will get to know you and help find a right amount of involvement for your level of interest. For the latest information about upcoming events visit our official blog or download our monthly newsletter.
  2. Become an Orgulloso Mentor and participate in Meet the Scholars events (likely be virtual this year), participate in the next Interview with a Bruin, or review UCLA Latino Alumni Association scholarship applications. Have questions? Please contact alumnimentor@alumni.ucla.edu.

  3. Lend your skillset. Are you an event planner? Join the planning committee for the next Fiesta de Inspiración. Do you have experience with social media strategy or design? Contact Community Relations and volunteer your skillset at the 47th annual Raza Graduation (June 14, 2020). There are opportunities year-round.

  4. Share our network with your network. We hear about a lot of people who want to support the Latino community but don't know how to do that. Share our website, forward our newsletter, like our posts on social media. All of these things help expand our network and discover better ways to serve our community.

  5. Follow us on Social


  6. Host a dinner with 12 Latino Bruins. Like UCLA's Dinner with 12 Strangers, except we set you up with current UCLA Latino students.

  7. Make a donation to our endowment.

  8. Help raise money for our endowment. Do you know a business or organization that would like to support the Latino Community? Let us know by emailing: LATINO@UCLA.ALUMNI.EDU

  9. Donate items to UCLA Latino Alumni Association. This can be school supplies for first-year students, gift cards, a new printer, laundry detergent, just about anything. Contact us, and we will arrange to meet for pick-up or meet for delivery. 

  10. Join a committee. Scholarships, Membership, Community Relations, Finance, and University Relations. Information about committees is found here. Meetings are announced in our newsletter. You can also contact members individually.

How do I donate to the UCLA Latino Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship fund? 

Visit the UCLA Alumni donation page and specify in the dropdown menu where you want your donation to go. You have a choice between UCLA Latino Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship Fund and the UCLA Latino Alumni Association Scholarship Fund for Current Use, from which we have created a second, flexible but interest earing, semi-edowment fund. The CATEGORY is Diversity and Outreach.

Can I volunteer my professional experience to help current students? 

Yes, absolutely. We are a volunteer organization and we are always thinking of ways to lift up our current students. You can use your professional experience by Mentoring a Latino Bruin. Applications are due October 2020. If you have general questions and inquiries, email to alumnimentor@alumni.ucla.edu.

You can volunteer to Interview a Latino Bruin. Empower current students to interview with confidence. Volunteer a few hours and make a positive impact on a student’s life. Interviews take place in November 2020. To get involved, email saa@alumni.ucla.edu.
