MLK Day of Service

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!

The 2021 Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service took place on Saturday, January 23rd, 2021.
