Join us for our annual MLK Jr. Days of Service from January 30th to February 10th, 2023! 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. Sign ups will launch on MLK Day, January 16th on ServeUTK!

If you sign up for a service slot and you are unable to attend the 2023 MLK Jr. Days of Service, please cancel your registration in ServeUTK at least 72 hours (three days) prior to your service day. Cancellations made after this date will not be accepted and students will be charged a $20 program fee. Our community partners have generously agreed to host us, and we want to be sure to give them an accurate number of volunteers. For more information, please our cancellation/no-show hold policy.
Wear comfortable and warm clothing and note that closed-toed shoes and long pants are mandatory as most service sites will be outside. Please check the weather before you arrive and dress accordingly.
In effort to practice sustainability, bring a reusable water bottle to use at your service location. Some service sites may also require masks. Please bring one with you if possible.
