UC Davis is proud to be among the selected 45 campuses statewide for the inaugural #CaliforniansForAll College Corps program. UC Davis, along with Sacramento State, Sacramento City College and Woodland Community College form the regional Sacramento Valley College Corps, or SVCC.

Led by the California Volunteers, Office of the Governor, the #CaliforniansForAll College Corps initiative has three goals:

  • engage college students in meaningful service to build leadership and civic responsibility;
  • promote academic success and economic well being with students from diverse backgrounds; and
  • to support the work of community-based organizations in key local priorities: K-12 Education, Climate Action, Food Insecurity.

Apply to be a Host Site 


Program Details

Fellows from UC Davis, Sacramento City College, Woodland Community College, and Sacramento State will be matched with community host sites in the areas of K-12 education, food security, and climate action. As members of the Sacramento Valley College Corps, they will complete 375 hours of service with your organization (roughly 13 hours/week). Fellows will receive a living allowance of $7,000 and an education award at the end of the service year, paid for by the Sacramento Valley College Corps grant.

Fellows will begin their service in September 2022 and complete their service year on or around May 2023. The following service year will start in September of 2023 and continue through May 2024. Please visit this page for more information about student recruitment.

A key element of this program is YOU: local community-based organizations and government agencies who are interested in hosting members throughout the academic year. As a community host site, you will ensure fellows meet service requirements while learning practical skills and interacting directly with your programs’ beneficiaries.

Priority will be given to organizations that can host five or more fellows at a time, who will engage in direct service impacting the areas of K-12 education, food security, and climate action. Examples of activities for each priority area are listed below.
 

Host Site Eligibility

Eligible community host sites for the SVCC must be a nonprofit organization or government agency able to:

  • supervise 2+ fellows providing direct service in at least one of the priority areas (K-12 education, food security, and climate action)
  • participate in required training
  • track and report hours
  • provide data regarding community outputs and outcomes


Priority Areas

K-12 Education
Direct service in this area is intended to support learning loss and barriers to learning due to the pandemic. Members will engage in tutoring, mentoring, family involvement, and classroom teaching/support.

Food Security
Direct service that supports food security will engage in activities that provide food/nutrition support, food production, food recovery, food literacy, and coaching, education, and/or training in these areas. 

Climate Action
Climate Action service opportunities will engage in activities that counter the adverse human impact on climate change through education and civic engagement. This can include tree planting, fire and flood mitigation, debris removal, education/training in environmental stewardship, and weatherization. 


Next Steps

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis through Friday, July 1, 2022. For the 2022-2023 academic year, priority will be given to those who apply by April 18, 2022.
