SITE LEADERS' MESSAGE

Are you interested in traveling? Are you passionate about social impact? Do you like learning about the environment and mental health? If so, our AB Phoenix trip is the right site for you! Both of us met amazing friends, became involved in meaningful service, and traveled to somewhere new during our previous AB trips. We’re sure this experience will be the same for you. Please reach out to us at ab@uclacsc.org if you have any questions. We would love to talk and have you on the team!
