About MLK Day:
On Monday, January 17, 2011, 8,000 volunteers joined City Year’s 1,750 corps members at locations across the United States to participate in a day of service to commemorate the civil rights movement and honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
In Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, New Hampshire, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, the opportunity to join in service followed inspiring opening ceremonies launching City Year’s Heroes programs, which engage middle school and high school students in community service and leadership development.
City Year celebrates Dr. King's birthday as a "day ON, not a day off” by honoring his legacy through service projects such as painting murals, restoring park areas, landscaping community spaces and leading educational activities for children.
