MLK Day Volunteering and Service Opportunities for Students

January 04, 2024
By Joe Fruscione, Communications, Content, and Advancement Coordinator

“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is celebrated on Monday January 15th this year, and this provides students and their families with a great chance to give back to their local community on a national day of service.

Below are some options for students to volunteer time in the DC metropolitan area—either for the MLK holiday weekend or at other times this year.
