Join Serve DC for its 2018 MLK Day of Service and Leadership

Members of the DC community join together with George Washington University as we celebrate and honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through service, leadership development, and interfaith dialogue. We are excited to announce that this year we will have opportunities for participants to either serve off-campus in direct service projects or engage on-campus through workshops and mobile service projects.

Each year, Americans across the country come together on the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday to honor Dr. King's life and legacy by serving their communities. The MLK Day of Service is part of United We Serve, the President's national service initiative, which calls on Americans to work together to solve our most pressing problems.
