Wired for Empathy at UCLA
Wired for Empathy (WE) is a non-profit organization aimed at connecting underserved elderly homes with UCLA students who are willing to speak about their passions and expertise in the greater Los Angeles region. Our club first started out as a group of history enthusiasts, but we quickly realized that a lot of our members brought expertise from a variety of fields. Many elderly homes grow disconnected from the outside world. Social isolation makes this population especially susceptible to a host of diseases. Our goal is to bring valuable skills, lectures, and discussions from UCLA students to these elderly homes in the hope that we can bring positively, enjoyment, and happiness to the residents. We believe strongly that the most valuable thing we have to share as students is our knowledge and willingness to serve.
