Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
Volunteer with the Y in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s service to community.
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday is a day of celebration for his life and legacy, a day we mark by locking arms in solidarity, living his principles in our work every day, and doing our part to pave the road to equity and justice for all. On this national holiday, we encourage you to use this “day off” as a “day on,” to serve and advance MLK's commitment to community by volunteering with the Y in service to others.
Before he inspired millions, before he spoke of a nation built on equity and justice, before he changed the world, Dr. King was just a kid at the Y.
Join us in this critical work to advance equity and justice for all.
