Did you know MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities? In observance of the national MLK Day of Service, NYC Service invites New Yorkers to participate in our local “MLK Day of Civic Action” on Monday, January 18. For this day of civic action, NYC Service will promote projects that advance equity and racial justice throughout the city. Join AmeriCorps members, City employees, and nonprofit partners in virtual and in-person service projects.
To view a listing of service projects occurring on or around MLK Day, visit the NYC Service website and the national MLK Day of Service website. If your organization is interested in hosting volunteers for the “MLK Day of Civic Action”, please register your opportunity with NYC Service and MLK Day of Service.
Share your MLK Day service experiences on social media! We encourage all of our partner organizations to promote your activities on social media, regardless of whether you are hosting an NYC Service project or creating your own.
