Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed in a nation of freedom and justice for all, and encouraged all citizens to live up to the purpose and potential of America by applying the principles of nonviolence. MLK Day of Service is a way to honor his life and teachings by engaging in community action that continues to solve social problems. Service breaks down barriers by bringing people from different experiences together – volunteering can unite Americans of all ages and backgrounds while building stronger communities.

Youth Service America’s MLK Day of Service work is powered by funding from: Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, Corporation for National & Community Service, and William + Flora Hewlett Foundation.
