Dr. MLK Jr. Day of Service 2021
LEARN, SERVE and CELEBRATE With Your Community

 

Our Mission:
Dr. King recognized the power of service. He famously said, "Everyone can be great because everybody can serve." Observing the Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday through service is a way to begin each year with a commitment to making your community a better place. Your service honors Dr. King's life and teachings and helps meet community challenges. Service also brings people together of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. The MLK Day of Service encourages all types of service, particularly projects that have a lasting impact and connect participants to ongoing service. The most successful projects connect to the life and teaching of Dr. King, meet a pressing community need, and include time to reflect on his teachings.

                MLK Day 2021 is going to look very different than in year’s past because this year we are relying heavily on student voice for this event. The day will be STUDENT PROPOSAL BASED. What this will look like is that students are able to propose what event they want to see happen on MLK Day and create as well as lead that event. We are hoping that this format will encourage Lawrence students to get more involved on this day of service and create events that they believe Lawrence needs. These events must align with the theme of the day and can be either virtual or in person, of course following the Lawrence COVID Guidelines.

In order to submit a proposal, scroll down the page to complete the submission form. Once you do that, you will be taken to a confirmation page listing out your next steps.

Remember, you as students have free reign to design the day as you see fit and we cannot wait to read your proposals! If you have any questions, email us at community.engagement@lawrence.edu or submit your questions directly on the bottom of this MLK page.
