National Days of Service
Held throughout the year, National Days of Service are meant to encourage volunteerism and civic engagment on a national scale. We encourage CVN volunteers, alumni, partners, and anyone intersted in full-time service to get involved. Here is more information about upcoming service days.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service.. Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off," giving Americans of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to honor the legacy of Dr. King through service to their community. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community." More information about this national day of service can be found at www.mlkday.gov.
