Description

Join us and participate in the first annual Alumni Day of Service!

What is the Day of Service?

No Matter Where You Are...
No Matter What Your Passion...
Together Gauchos Give Back and Make the World a Better Place!

On February 24, 2018, we want to unite all Gauchos throughout the United States, and the world to participate in a day of giving back to your community. We encourage you to find a volunteer opportunity in your area that is meaningful to you and spend anywhere from one to a few hours giving back.

Register here and tell us what act of service you will participate in on February 24th and we'll send you a Gauchos Give Back t-shirt to wear on the day. Post a picture of yourself wearing your t-shirt on social media using the hashtag #GauchosGiveBack and email your photo to ucsbalum@ia.ucsb.edu including your name and class year.
