[ Update ]
The East St. Louis Action Research Project (ESLARP) hit East St. Louis last weekend with a vengeance. Over seventy volunteers, faculty, and staff took on nine different jobs, and implemented a neighborhood wide summit in the Lansdowne neighborhood. These energetic students did everything from building a park (from start to finish for the people of the Bride of Christ Church), to boarding up windows on two old schools, to putting in playground equipment for a local faith-based child care center. ESLARP also had the distinct privilege of having ESLARP alumni join us with their expertise and great stories of the past. ESLARP has had an outstanding year thanks to all the people that helped in the implementation of the outreach weekends, plus the superior help from all the student volunteers that make it all happen. We thank you for your help, hope you had a great experience, and want to see you back in the fall!
