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

Teen Tech Team

Teen Tech Team is a Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) sponsored youth program aimed at teaching youth, ages 14-18, computer hardware, software diagnostics, and business entrepreneurship skills.  Teens learn to build a computer with donated parts from Prairienet of UIUC and Computer Village of St. Louis.  Along with technology expertise, teens also learn about business as they sell the used and refurbished computers to the community at affordable prices.  Participating teens also have the opportunity to work with GSLIS students refurbishing computers for non-profit organizations.
