— Southeast Asian (SEA) Admit Weekend is held in collaboration by Southeast Asian Student Organizations at UCLA, including the Vietnamese Student Union, United Khmer Students, Thai Student Association, the Association of Hmong Students, Burmese Student Association, Asian Pacific Coalition, and Southeast Asian Campus Learning Education and Retention. SEA Admit Weekend seeks to promote higher education, increase community consciousness, and provide a safe and supportive Southeast Asian community on campus. In addition, we would also like to introduce Southeast Asian admits to the vast variety of opportunities and resources available at UCLA.
The four-day, three-night weekend will be taking place from April 12th-April 15th, 2018. The event includes workshops, a talent show, student/alumni panelists, and keynote speakers, as well as tours and a chance to experience student life with UCLA Housing and Dining.
The ultimate goal is to allow students to experience what it might be like to be a UCLA student in a supportive Southeast Asian community and build the next generation of empowered student leaders. An award-winning event like SEA Admit weekend would not be possible without its amazing Coordinators, Facilitators, and Family Heads, so please apply!
If you have any questions regarding the application or further information about each position, please contact Linh Tran at: [email protected]
Please indicate which type of position for which you will be applying and complete the form on the following page. If you want to to apply to different positions, please submit another response on the form with your additional interested position.
As a co-chair you are expected to be familiar with planning an event of this type or scale. You will meet several times weekly, including with staff, your fellow co-chairs, and with individual components/coordinators. In addition, you will also meet with UCLA officials and faculty during weekly meetings and outreach events. Upon meeting with fellow co-chairs, you will assist in planning and executing staff meetings as well as a retreat. You are a representative of the entire program itself. Since each co-chair will be meeting with, working with, and managing certain components (i.e., providing guidance), it is strongly preferred that co-chairs have had experience volunteering for SEA Admit or similar programs. Lastly, you must also be available the weekend of the event.
PLEASE NOTE: All applicants are required to participate in an in-person interview to be scheduled upon submission of the application.
*CO-CHAIR APPLICATIONS DUE JAN. 7th, 2018 @ 11:59PM
Generally speaking, coordinators should expect to spend a minimum of 6 hours a week on planning and development, of which 2 will be mandatory once a week at staff meetings. Coordinators and their Co-Coordinators (if applicable) are responsible for different aspects of the weekend like Food, Transportation, and Housing. Certain Coordinators will be in charge of a committee (for example, Family Head and Workshops Coordinators work with sub-committees who apply through a separate application). Coordinators meet at least once weekly with staff, and schedule separate meeting times with the co-chairs and their committees where applicable. Coordinators must be present the entire weekend and are expected to act as general volunteers throughout the program, especially if their coordinator responsibilities are complete by the beginning of the weekend (i.e. outreach, housing, fiscal, etc.). Coordinator position descriptions are on the following page.

It is preferred, but not required, that family heads have had some experience volunteering for SEA Admit or similar programs in the past, such as a facilitator, coordinator, etc. In addition, family heads who are at least second years are strongly preferred.
