The SWC CPR & First Aid Program at UCLA is a committee under USAC’s Student Wellness Commission. Our goal is to curb the rising trend of increasing prehospital deaths around the nation by teaching basic life-saving skills to community members. Our program’s instructors are a team of dedicated UCLA undergraduates of all majors, certified by the American Heart Association to teach Heartsaver CPR and First Aid, as well as Basic Life Support (BLS).

While we usually spend fall teaching in-person courses, we will instead be focusing this quarter on the teaching and leadership development of our new instructors in addition to welcoming and integrating them into our CPR family. We are excited to show y’all what the #cprlove is all about ❤️⚡️

The UCLA Pritzker Center supports foster and volunteer families across the Los Angeles area. Foster children are three times more likely to drop out of high school, and ten times less likely to graduate from a four year college. With so many children out of school, there is an urgent need for tutors to help or prevent foster children from falling behind. Are you patient, enthusiastic about math, and looking for a volunteer opportunity that you can do virtually? Please consider signing up to be a volunteer tutor at this link:
