MLK Jr. Day of Service and Solidarity 2018: Agency Registration
Thank you for your interest in serving as a site and hosting GVSU volunteers for MLK Jr. Day of Service and Solidarity on Saturday, January 20, 2018. This is a National Day of Service where volunteers across America serve in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. GVSU's service project is coordinated by the CSLC and the MLK Week Executive Planning Committee. The goal of the event is to provide opportunities for students to learn about organizations that promote social change as well as inspire them to serve their communities in the spirit of social change.
We are looking for nonprofit agencies that can accommodate eight or more volunteers from 11:00am to 3:00pm. There will be a sack lunch provided by GVSU and students will be led in a reflection of the experiences by their student leader during this time. It is encouraged that a representative from your organization engage in reflection with the volunteers. Participants will then be picked up by bus at 3:00 p.m. and return to the Allendale Campus.
Deadline for Application: Monday, December 4, at 5:00pm.
PLEASE NOTE: In an attempt to ensure that there are a variety of agencies representing a diverse selection of community needs as well as offering appropriate volunteer work for college students, we will be reviewing all submissions and will notify the contact person listed by November 20 to verify participation of your agency.
