MLK Day of Service

“Our ultimate end must be the creation of the beloved community”
– Martin Luther King Jr.

MLK Day of Service is one of JVC’s four annual events, covering Sunday and Monday of the national observance  day honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. MLK Day of Service engages the community in service learning experiences focused on social justice issues as well as hands-on volunteer opportunities throughout Baltimore. This past year’s event proceeded mainly virtual due to the pandemic , which made for engaging and interactive community conversations and learning focused on racial justice and its intersection with volunteerism.

Thank you to everyone who participated and made this year’s event a great success!

Here is what our participants said about MLK Day 2021:

  • “I grew up volunteering, especially on MLK Jr Day, and want to instill the same idea with my children.“
  • “I just wanted to say thank you. I’ve attended a LOT of programs and this was fantastically well done. Thank you!”
