UCLA Community Programs Office (CPO)
The Community Programs Office affirms that through community service that theoretical classroom instruction must be coupled with action that transforms these theories into practice.
In this manner students can come to understand the root causes of poverty and how to use their collective power to make social change. Students are encouraged to engage their work in the community with respect and an open mind, increasing opportunities for life-changing experiences. Ultimately the outcome of community service is that a student’s experiences and the management skills they develop become relevant to community empowerment and to creating a better world for all humanity. Project directors and volunteers work in earnest year round to provide a plethora of social, health and youth services to under-served communities throughout Los Angeles and beyond.
