La Familia Volunteer Program

La Familia Volunteer Program

La Familia is the volunteer program for the Cesar E. Chavez Center for Higher Education (CECCHE). Originally named Los Compadres, it was designated La Familia to re-establish the program in a gender-inclusive form in line with the mission of OSLCC (Office of Student Life and Cultural Centers). It is a cohort-based program through which students volunteer their time supporting CECCHE efforts including marketing, engagement and event management. The program is designed in a way that fosters a sense of community within cohorts and a sense of belonging within Cal Poly Pomona by way of activities within orientation and meetings as well as social meetups. La Familia works in partnership with CECCHE Staff, other offices in OSLCC, and academic partners in the Ethnic & Women Studies Department to establish volunteer opportunities.
