MLK Day of Service

Posted on Wednesday, January 16, 2019

Join the Center for Student Engagement for this year’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service on Monday, January 21, 2019 from 8:20am-1:00pm

A Day On – Not a Day Off! Join other Nevada students remembering the legacy of Dr. King by working with the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows.  Learn about the wonderful organization in our community, meet new people, help your community firsthand, and celebrate Dr. King! The MLK Day of Service is part of a campus-wide celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his commitment to social justice.   You must stay the entire time.    Sign up online

We will meet in front of the Jot Travis building at 8:20am and take the CONNECT shuttle over to the Boys & Girls club at 8:30am. 
Once we get there we will:
1.      Read with the kids a story about Martin Luther King Jr. and have a discussion about why we celebrate the day.
2.      Help the kids write thank you letters to Civil Rights leaders who marched with Martin Luther King Jr.
3.      Help the kids make signs ready for their own mini MLK Day march.
4.      After the march is over, we’ll have lunch and also have a chance to listen to their guest speakers.

We will head back to campus at 1:00pm. Lunch and transportation will be provided.
