Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Jan 16 2023 - 12:00am to 11:59pm

Join Serve Washington and AmeriCorps in  Jan 16 by Honring Dr, Martin Luther King, Jr. through servixe

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.

How You Can Serve 

Serve Washington’s AmeriCorps members will be leading service projects throughout the state of Washington, including cleaning up public space, collecting essential needs items for organizations fighting social injustice, mentoring young people, and facilitating dialogue that explores ways to address inequity. However, you don’t have to be an AmeriCorps member to participate. 

Serve Washington has a free, new Volunteer Connect tool. Volunteer Connect lets you search for service projects by location, date, ability, organization and/or project focus.  You can also use this tool to list your service project poeple searching for a project can join you. to find an MLK Day Service project near you, click on the MLK Day banner on the home page.
