A brief description of the institution’s program to support employee volunteering:

Volunteer50 challenges student, staff, faculty, and community members to perform 50 hours or more of community service per year. Volunteers register online for the challenge, then search for volunteer opportunities and track their service. Each month a service theme will be featured and they’ll showcase one local All-Star community organization that fits the month’s theme. Volunteers may perform their service anywhere, and incentives will be offered for individuals and groups who reach a high level of service. Volunteer50 @ UCSD hosts an end of the year recognition ceremony celebration for all employees that have performed community service during the year. A certificate is given to any employee who participated in service during that year.
