MLK Jr. Days of Service

Join us for our annual MLK Jr. Days of Service beginning on January 30th to February 11th, 2022! This series embodies the importance of living out the legacy of Dr. King by volunteering and supporting our community. Volunteers will depart to various service sites in the Greater Knoxville area in either a Morning or Afternoon session to serve, reflect on the meaning of Dr. King’s legacy and make meaningful connections with nonprofits in our area. Historically, this event has been held in one day, but given the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 we have decided to split our service up over the course of two weeks to better serve students and the community alike.

2022 MLK Jr. Days of Service has not opened yet! Please check back later for a registration link.
