Thank you for participating!

The annual event that encourages UC Santa Barbara alumni across the globe to get active in their communities. This year's event was a huge success! On August 21st, over 400 Gauchos spent their Saturdays giving back to their communities. If you participated, be sure to email photos to us at

Show the world how #GauchosGiveBack! Last year's Day of Service provided virtual initiatives, such as opportunities to donate to organizations like Feeding America and more hands-on offerings like volunteering for the Smithsonian Digital Volunteers. This year, we're again promoting these types of events and also planning in-person opportunities that comply with the COVID-safety guidelines of respective counties. 

If you're not in California, we haven't forgotten you! There are both nationwide and international events in locations such as Washington, Texas, New York, and the UK. Don't see an event in your location? Events will be added regularly so be sure to check back.

If there are no events in your area feel free to volunteer in any way that you'd like. Be sure to register by August 9th to receive your free Day of Service T-shirt in time for the event. And if you think it's something others may enjoy, email us, and we may be able to add it to the schedule.

Day of Service Through the Years


Consider donating to the Gaucho For Life Fund as your act of service this year.
