about MSHIP

history & Mission

In 2001, several UCLA students took action in creating a club that embodied the characteristics of selflessness, inspiration, and leadership.


Through collaborative efforts with Volunteers of America, the Mentorship Program at UCLA took the large youth community residing in the government-subsidized apartments of North Hollywood and brought them under their guidance.


Mentorship is now a year-long program that facilitates one-on-one relationships between student volunteers at UCLA and children from these underserved communities in North Hollywood.

By emphasizing the importance of higher education, important values, creation and preservation of meaningful relationships, and the pursuit of their desired careers, Mentorship has withstood 18 years of life and continues to grow.
