About UCR College Corps
UCR College Corps is part of #CaliforniansForAll College Corps, a brand new statewide program uniting students from different backgrounds with a common purpose. The initiative is committed to helping college students graduate on time, with less debt, while addressing societal challenges in the Riverside community.
College Corps Fellows serve over the course of one academic year in local government agencies, schools, and not-for-profit organizations. Service placements focus on three priority areas: Education, Climate Action, and Food Insecurity.
Recruitment for the 2022-2023 Cohort is closed however, we will open recruitment for the 2023-2024 Cohort in Spring 2023.
To contact UCR College Corps, please contact Jess Saldivar, UCR College Corps Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (951) 827-1508.
The #CaliforniaForAll CollegeCorps program has three main goals.
- Create a generation of civic minded leaders with the ability to bridge divides and solve problems
- Help low income students graduate college on time and with less debt.
- Address societal challenges and help build more equitable communities across California.
Serve your community. Gain critical professional experience. Save money on your education.
CollegeCorps has been a fulfilling program that I am proud to be part of. I look forward everyday to go back and help all those incredible 5th graders that are impacting my life in more ways that I can explain. They are changing me for the better, they have showed me so much respect, trust, and admiration. This program is changing lives.”
