Your Year of Service

The UECC AmeriCorps program is a win/win for you and the residents of the Eastside community.

Being a UECC AmeriCorps Mentor was absolutely the most fulfilling, rewarding experience of my UC Riverside career! I learned what it means to be a role model and how much pride a child could feel with a push in the right direction. I never expected to be so involved in shaping my community.
