About Us


The Everett Program empowers students to use the technical, educational, and research resources of the university to work directly with communities, empowering people to design practical solutions to persistent problems. Our aim is to pursue social change through proactive solutions that make an immediate and enduring impact

Theory of Change

Everett is the home for UCSC students who want a quality, student-centric education at a major research university. Our style of engaged lecture, near-to-peer teaching and leadership, and unique brand of service learning all coalesce into a learning experience that doesn’t exist anywhere else in world. Our methods are predicated on community engaged activism and appropriate use of technology to work in solidarity to create social change and promote sustainability. Through projects and impactathons, Everett students at UCSC take the fight for social justice into their own hands

The fellows are self managing and are understood to be the true governing body of the Everett Program. We are also compromised of staff who serve as program directors as well as executive fellows who are recently graduated fellows committed full time to serving the needs of the program. Everett Program also has a strong alumni network that help fundraise the program
