Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through Service

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is an annual university-wide event which takes place every January to give UNCG students an opportunity to be introduced to different parts of our community while honoring Dr. King’s legacy through service. Participation is free. Volunteer teams will be led by a student facilitator and transportation is provided from campus. We hope this day sparks your interest to continue to learn and serve in the Greensboro community and get involved on-campus and locally!

MLK Day of Service 2024 will be on Saturday, January 13th from 1-5pm. Please note this is not the actual MLK Holiday and the time has been shifted later in the afternoon this year to account for cold weather. A free long-sleeved t-shirt, transportation to sites, snacks, and a meal after the service project will be provided.

Student registration opens on November 20th at the link below. If you are hoping to participate in the same project with a group or some friends, please be sure each individual registers themselves and include the SAME group name when prompted. A waitlist will automatically open once our volunteer spots are full.

Site Leader Position

Have you participated in one of our days of service before or do you have plenty of service experience? Apply to be a Site Leader! As a Site Leader for MLK Day of Service it will be your responsibility to check-in your site participants, lead them to transportation, communicate with the community partner upon arrival, serve as the site contact, and lead reflection activities (provided by OLCE) after service. Site leaders will also attend a mandatory site leader training.
