With the help of parent and family members like you, UCLA Parent & Family Association volunteers have already welcomed thousands of students and families to campus, provided assistance with campus initiatives and supported the efforts of our office. Volunteer participation is unquestionably vital to the success of UCLA programs and events throughout the year. Volunteers assist with event planning, outreach to other parents and families, student support and fundraising phone calls.

You don’t have to live in Los Angeles to make a difference; our parent and family volunteers come from all over the world! Check out the map below to see where our current volunteers reside.
