Career Growth & Professional Development
Learning is one of our H&HS key success factors. We have a goal of 25 hours of training per year per career team member – a goal we often exceed. Last year, 88 percent of H&HS team members participated in at least one training class or activity to help them improve their skills.

Volunteering Opportunities in the Community
Help give back to the community and join other UCLA employees in reading to children, volunteering at a local food bank and much more.
- Reading is Fundamental (RIF)
Employees visit local elementary schools and teach the importance of reading at an early age by reading and giving books to students. The mission of RIF is to motivate young children to read by working with them, their parents and community members to make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life.
- Food Bank Volunteering
Every year, H&HS employees visit the L.A. Food Bank to help package food for those in need during the holidays. Food donations are also collected around H&HS facilities and the UCLA Food Closet.
- Toy Drive for Mattel Children’s Hospital
H&HS works in collaboration with UCLA Staff Assembly and other campus partners to collect toys.
- Quarterly Blood Drive
Per drive, H&HS typically donates 100 pints of blood. The UCLA Blood and Platelet Center reimburses employees for four hours of comp time for every pint of blood donated.
- I’m Going to College
Started in 2007, H&HS coordinates team members’ participation in this annual event, which is conducted in collaboration with UCLA Athletics and the Admissions office. The event aims to bring families with children who are in middle school and high school to UCLA to experience college life for a day and help encourage the children to attend college in the future.
