iHelp is the signature campus-wide day of service in the fall, bringing together students, their surrounding community, and university alumni in an organized effort to create a culture of giving at the University of Illinois. Each year, over a thousand students come together to assist dozens of agencies across the Champaign-Urbana area in a display of gratitude to the community we call home. The Student Alumni Ambassadors (SAA) handle the logistics of the event, advertise the availability of volunteers to service agencies, and recruit students to participate.
It is an inclusive event that brings together students from a multitude of backgrounds and generates around 4500 hours of service for the community each year. iHelp creates a positive and clear impact on the local population, all while helping students develop the Illinois spirit of service. We strive to encourage students to realize the effect they have on the community via service in order to better not just the community, but also themselves.
iHelp 2018 will be taking place on September 22 from 9am-2pm.
Group leader and group member/individual registration is now closed.
Students studying abroad may sign up below as well. Help us to spread the Illini spirit of service around the world and become involved in your home away from Illinois!
