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

My first ESLARP experience was as a general volunteer on one of ESLARP's outreach weekends, back in 1999 when I was an undergraduate student at the University of Illinois.  My ESLARP experience stayed with me throughout the years while I was working as a canvass director, union organizer, and community organizer. I recently returned to school to earn a Masters in Urban Planning from the University of Illinois, and as a graduate student I had the opportunity to be one of ESLARP's graduate assistants.    Working with community members has always been one of my passions, and I look forward to giving new students an opportunity to become engaged in community projects.  I am currently teaching FAA 291, Civic Engagement in East St. Louis, and providing website support for ESLARP.
