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!

I attended undergrad here as well. I have worked with Brooklyn, IL in the past and have participated in ESLARP trips since 2005. I am a Graduate Advisor for the Transition Program (LAS) and have worked with them in some capactiy every year and summer since 2003. I am currently working on my Capstone in Galesburg, IL (East Main Redevelopment Project) My favorite things about planning is networking, working with underrepresented youth and working in ethnic enclaves. I try to be very organized and engaged with what is going on around me for the most part and I am know to ask a lot of questions for clarification. Looking forward to working with all of you!
