Cub Tours

UCLA Cub Tours is a volunteer student organization whose mission is to educate, motivate and inspire students in elementary and middle school to pursue higher education through tours of our campus. 

Our volunteer Cub Guides welcome over 20,000 visitors annually. We primarily serve low-income and underrepresented students from across the Greater Los Angeles area, however we also see many out-of-state and international visitors.
