Global Brigades at UCLA

The application for the 2016-2017 year is now up and running! The link is provided on the menu to the right, so for those of you who are interested please check that out!

Returners, stay tuned for more information on new membership changes!


We are excited about your interest to join this global movement to make positive change in communities internationally and locally through sustainable development.

We aim to empower volunteers to facilitate sustainable solutions in under-resourced communities while fostering local cultures, as well as implementing the voice of the community in our efforts, to improve quality of life; by igniting a student-led social responsibility movement at the University of California, Los Angeles and to apply the knowledge learned abroad toward the positive eradication of structural inequalities in our own communities in partnership with the local non-profit, Los Angeles Public Health Alliance.

Whether you are interested in working globally or locally, you will have innumerable opportunities through the different disciplines offered here at UCLA. Furthermore, you will be learning about the various aspects underlying international and local development work, including philosophies, challenges, and stories of community members and volunteers.

Med/Dent/Water Brigade in Nicaragua from Dec 10-18. For more information, come out to the info meeting on Wednesday of week 1 from 6-7pm in Royce Hall 362.
