The UECC strives to improve the lives of youth in the Eastside of Riverside by providing academic assistance in their schools, providing a safe and welcoming after-school environment, and engaging Eastside residents in service to their community.
The University Eastside Community Collaborative (UECC) is a partnership among the City of Riverside, Riverside Unified School District, and UC Riverside. Each year, UECC recruits 85 college students to become year-long AmeriCorps members who mentor and tutor youth at local schools and community centers throughout Riverside's Eastside to increase academic achievement in Math and English Language Arts. These college students serve in 7 schools and 3 community centers, grades K-6, as positive role models. UECC offers tutoring to students who need it the most in the City of Riverside and an opportunity for college students to serve their community.
