MLK Day 2017
Volunteer

Join MCC's annual MLK Day of Service

Each year more than 500 students, faculty, staff and community members make it a Day On instead of a Day Off by celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy of humanity and service. This is an amazing opportunity to be a part of a vital MCC tradition as well as a national event celebrating community service.

Service is a great way to get together and have fun while meeting new people! - MCC Student
It is a great way to honor all of the hard work that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did so what better way to honor him than giving back to the community by helping out! - MCC Student
If everyone does a little, than we can achieve big things. Someone once said that service is the way we pay rent for living on this planet. I am way behind on "paying rent" so I have a lot of things I need to do and I am glad to be a part of MCC's MLK Day of Service. - MCC Faculty

Each MCC campus will be hosting a number of community service projects as a special way to celebrate the day.

To register as a volunteer, please click the desired campus in the menu on the right. Contact your choice's Campus Life & Leadership office directly to request a specific location. Otherwise, coordinators will place volunteers where needed.
