Call For Volunteers

Please see below for two fun opportunities to volunteer with the University of California Trust (UK), at two annual, signature events - the UC Summer Barbecue and Team UC in the British 10K


UC Summer Barbecue Volunteers

The 5th Annual UC Summer Barbecue will take place on Saturday 1 July 2017, at Coram Community Campus in Central London (Bloomsbury). The event serves as a celebration of the UC International community; as a send-off for incoming first year UC students; a welcome to London for UC summer study abroad students and to help Team UC reach their goal of fundraising £3,000 for UC student scholarships. The day also includes food & drink, games and plenty of fun!

We are looking for 8-10 volunteers to help with the following areas

-          Raffle

-          Marketing & Social Media

-          Production & Management

Volunteers are asked to attend 1 to 2 pre-event meetings (dates TBC) and to participate on the day (Saturday 1 July). In return, volunteers will receive a complimentary ticket to the event, an invite to a special Volunteer Celebration later in the summer, and our eternal thanks! 

Team UC Cheer Squad Volunteers

In 2007, the first Team of University of California alumni laced up their running shoes to run in the British 10K. Now ten years later, UC alumni, students and friends of UC will once again be taking to the streets of London to show their support for international education! 

We are looking for 5-6 volunteers to make up the Team UC Cheer Squad to encourage, cheer on and congratulate our runners as they pass that finish line after months of training and fundraising. The Cheer Squad will meet runners early on race day, hold on to personal belongings, and be positioned along the side lines to cheer runners on. Upon conclusion of the race, the Cheer Squad will hand out refreshments to runners and help get runners together for campus photos. 

Volunteers are asked to attend 1 pre-race day meeting (date TBC) and participation on the day (Sunday 9 July). In return, volunteers will receive a voucher for Tortilla: Real California Burrito, an invite to a special volunteer celebration later in the summer, and our eternal thanks!
