Volunteer opportunities

UCA communications committee

We're looking for volunteers to help with our social media, website, and newsletters. If you can create graphics, use a CMS, or like to write or tell stories, we'd love to hear from you! The time commitment is flexible.  Email

UCA events & engagement committee

It takes a wide variety of skills to bring events and engagement opportunities to a community.  We welcome creative people, planners and organizers, people who enjoy meeting and welcoming others, leaders, and people who just want to help out from time-to-time. Anyone who wants to make UniverCity a more fun and connected place! Email

UCA volunteer pool

From time-to-time the UCA needs help with special projects and the day-to-day running of the community association. If you're interested in helping the community on a regular or occasional basis, please email and tell us a bit about your interests, skills, and availability.

UniverCity Wildfire Safety Program

Help us work towards making our community a safer and more resilient place. Email

School garden committee

The elementary school welcomes new volunteers year-round. You don't need a child at the school to join, you just need to enjoy being outside, getting your hands dirty and eating veggies fresh from the garden!
