Young Legislators Program
On Saturday, May 30, 2015, Assemblymember Cristina Garcia’s Young Legislators Program was hosted at UCLA by State Government Relations unit. Garcia’s Young Legislators Program is a leadership program designed to expose high school students from the 58th Assembly District to the complexities of government, business, and education by sponsoring monthly visits to Los Angeles community partners. This month’s Young Legislators session at UCLA was the last for the 2015 class. This Fall, many of these young leaders will be attending several UC campuses and other California universities.
Their UCLA visit consisted of a hosted breakfast and lunch, a campus tour and a presentation from the UCLA Undergraduate Admissions department regarding best practices for succeeding in college. The Young Legislators program campus visit is one of many ways that UCLA Government and Community Relations has committed to the mission of building bridges between UCLA, the greater Los Angeles community, and the government entities with which it interacts with each day.
