About Community Engagement
UCLA Health and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA have been committed to serving the community of greater Los Angeles. The Community Engagement Program delivers support for community-based research, service-learning, service delivery, education and workforce development projects to strengthen and advance our work in the community.
Hundreds volunteer at Care Harbor LA
More than 300 physicians and nurses, dentists, ophthalmologists and members of student volunteer groups signed up to work at the clinic that brings together community partners to care for thousands of uninsured, underinsured and at-risk people from across Southern California.
Turner-UCLA Allied Health Internship
UCLA Community Engagement's Turner-UCLA Allied Health Internship was created in early 2017 when philanthropists Lauren and Bobby Turner partnered with UCLA to give students from under-resourced areas exposure to allied health careers. The program offers students support to learn about careers, pathways into training programs, and opportunities for scholarships and professional development.
UCLA supports a variety of volunteer opportunities, service learning projects, and pipeline programs. Learn more about all the opportunities to participate.
