UCLA Bruin Guardian Scholars Program serves 140 current and former Foster youth who attend UCLA. These students have overcome barriers such as homelessness, family mental health issues, and abuse throughout their lives and are extremely resilient. This program provides a welcoming community for its members and builds a community of peers who have faced similar challenges in life.

Thank you to all who made last year's Dorm Move-In Event such as success!
The Dorm move in event was a huge success thanks to your donations and volunteering! We were able to equip all the students with sheets, towels, pillows, blankets, toiletries, extension cords, lamps, school supplies, food gift cards etc. and help them settle into their dorm rooms. Thank you for your generosity and energy!
