Next Saturday Academy – Social Workers and Caregivers

  • news2April 18th, Cohort 1 will be shuttled and participating in the Glamour Gowns and Attire event from 9am-11am, then shuttled to UCLA for the afternoon/evening portion of the Saturday Academy. They must register themselves for the Glamour Gown and Attire event, specifically in the 9am-11am slot. I have notified all of them that they need to register, but if you can assist me in verifying that they have done this, that will help a great deal.

Contact Information Request – Social Workers

newsIn an effort to maintain the most up-to-date contact information, we ask both guardians/ social workers to let the BGSA know as soon as a placement changes for a student in our program, as well as the contact phone # and address where the student and caregiver can be reached. For this, please email me at

IMPORTANT! Caregivers, Social Workers

We would like to extend invitations to the Caregivers/Guardians/Social Workers of our students, to attend our Saturday Academies here on the UCLA campus. If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
