Second Saturdays

Activating First Friday Networks and Inspirations

UCSC's First Friday Social Change Forums not only spotlight a social justice topic each month, but also engage students directly with communities and partners through panel discussions, roundtables, and networking/tabling opportunities. The Second Saturdays series -- which follows on each month's First Friday forum -- provides still more opportunities for students to get involved, through short-term direct service, guided neighborhood explorations, community adventure creation, and special MealSharing.com "dining with a purpose" events.  Click below to learn more!
