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!


Enriching perspectives through community engagement

Community Partners

ESLARP has, since 1987, been an important part of a growing neighborhood revitalization movement in East St. Louis. Many residents are actively involved in neighborhood revitalization, local churches support and often lead improvement efforts. These communal efforts have produced ambitious plans and tangible results: new infrastructure and housing investment; new learning and employment opportunities; increased local government accountability. ESLARP is a part of this history through our close relationships with neighborhood- and project based organizations and some of the products of our partnership have helped guide the development in East St. Louis.
