Civic Match

Want to connect?

Interested in getting involved with civic engagement work on campus or in the city, but not sure how to begin? Our student staff team and our Civic Match resource is here to help!

Through one-on-one conversations, our team can connect you to civic engagement opportunities and resources at the UCSC, across campus, and beyond. Meet with them and come away with a personalized plan for accessing resources and participating in the kinds of experiences which most move and activate you. 

Students who take advantage of this service may find themselves taking part in civic engagement programs and projects at the UCSC, the Institute of Politics, the Neighborhood Schools Program, student-run organizations, or others; connecting to academic and employment resources across the University; or even identifying an ongoing off-campus volunteer placement with a partner organization. 

You can sign up for one of these conversations here, or simply walk-in to our suite in Edelstone. If you have questions, please contact us at

PLEASE NOTE:  Civic Match is not available during the summer.
