GCGP would not be able to maintain our extensive operations without the support of passionate volunteers. Here’s a little about one of our top volunteers, Akanksha:
In her first two years at UCLA, Akanksha found herself involved in clubs that revolved around her major. When she joined GCGP in her 3rd year, she found a space on campus that gave back to the community she is a part of. “I wanted a break from the project-based orgs I had been involved with thus far, and was looking for a more inclusive space that was less competitive,” she shares. “When I saw GCGP’s digital flyer on Facebook one day, I knew it checked all my boxes!”
As a caring volunteer, Akanksha recalls a unique experience with a visitor to the center: “She tried on some outfits and even asked for my opinion on how they looked on her. We had a small fashion show! She had the biggest smile on her face when she was leaving the center.”
When asked about her role in GCGP, Akanksha emphasized she was doing what she could to make UCLA a better place. “I simply see myself as a volunteer at the center — as someone who gives away a few hours of her day each week to help keep the center running, so that we can serve as many students as possible. I’m glad I have stayed with this organization because it has been a super fulfilling journey working with some incredible volunteers who share a passion for serving their community.”
