Community - Campus Day of Service

April 5, 2014

On Saturday, April 5th, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign kicked off National Volunteer Week with an inaugural Community-Campus Day of Service. Over 60 students, faculty and staff worked with six community partners on seven projects to complete pre-construction projects, community garden spring preparation projects, flyering in the community, reorganizing classrooms at Tap in Leadership Academy, cataloging choral literature, and preparing a Bee Garden. A big thank you goes out to all who helped on April 5!

Outreach Weekends

Student, faculty and staff volunteers from the University of Illinois work alongside local residents and members of nonprofit groups on various projects. ESLARP designs their Outreach Weekends not only to provide local community groups with physical improvement services, but also to give the students a chance to participate in a service-learning activity that would assist them in their professional development.
