Champions of Change
Cameron Hajialiakbar is the founder and president of the Coaching Corps chapter at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Coaching Corps trains, and places volunteer coaches into after-school programs serving girls and boys in low-income communities to bridge the ever-growing access gap between those that have and those that don’t have access to quality youth sports programming with trained and caring coaches. Cameron joined Coaching Corps as an AmeriCorps member in 2011 and his passion for direct service influenced him to expand the program into the greater Los Angeles area. Cameron is currently a third year student at UCLA where he is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in communication studies with plans to continue on to law school.
