Student organization African Americans United in Science (AAUS) boasts two great outreach programs: Roads to Success and SOAR.

Roads to Success is a one-day program, during spring-quarter program, aimed at encouraging Inland Empire minority high school students to pursue a university education, especially in science. Visiting students hear from prominent members of the UCR and Riverside community, including students and AAUS members. Attendees take a tour of the campus and participate in a fun, lab-like science experiment. The program is free for all who participate, but volunteers do need to purchase a $15 t-shirt.

If you are interested in being part of this year’s Roads to Success program, either as a volunteer or as a participant, please email African Americans United in Science at AAUS.ucr@gmail.com.

The SOAR program focuses on reaching out to Inland Empire elementary school students through afternoon tutoring at the Stratton Center on Martin Luther King Boulevard. The minimum commitment for volunteers is two hours per week and volunteer registration with the City of Riverside is required in order to participate.

If you are interested in volunteering your time as a tutor or obtaining tutoring, please email African Americans United in Science at AAUS.ucr@gmail.com.
