CARE also provides trauma-informed yoga to survivors and awareness and prevention education to the campus community. Custom workshops and trainings are offered on a variety of topics related to sexual violence. Learn more. 

The GRIT Peer Coaching Program

Do you want 1-on-1 peer support to help you adjust to campus life? The Bruin Resource Center’s GRIT Peer Coaching Program provides peer-to-peer life coaching for students. Well-trained peer coaches personally assist students to catalyze their success in multiple dimensions of well-being through strategies for academic success, social support, and self-efficacy. 

UCLA Recreation

Do you enjoy playing tennis and want to be part of a "team" that's not necessarily at the competitive level of the official UCLA Tennis Team? Would you like to take a healthy study break by participating in a fun Zumba class? UCLA Recreation offers these opportunities and many more through their recreational activities and services in their facilities on and off campus. 

Although some require a nominal fee, other activities are included in your student fees and offer a great opportunity to meet new friends and maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
