The Children’s Institute – Los Angeles
Our club is very active and puts on several events throughout the year with a focus on:
- UVA admissions
- Engagement with current and prospective students
We have a lot of fun and would love for you to join the festivities.
- Support & Committees
The UVA Club of Los Angeles no longer has “members” who pay membership dues. Instead, everyone is a member and the Club’s events will be open to all. For those events for which the Club charges a fee to attend or participate, it will be a single price, rather than one price for non-members and a discounted price for members. Instead of paying a membership fee, the Club will instead be seeking donations from its supporters. This change-over will have one major change – the previous “membership fees” will be replaced by (hopefully) your donations, which will be fully tax-deductible.
