Join the Movement

  • With the fifth year of funding from the Florida Legislature, St. Petersburg College and the MLK Advisory Committee are looking to make the 2017 MLK Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 16, 2017, the most memorable community service event to date. Please help us and join hundreds of local citizens who choose to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by serving the community. Let's make MLK Day a day on, not just a day off!

    How do I get involved?

    • Apply online by 11:59 pm on Friday, Nov. 4, 2016
    • Serve as a volunteer in another organization or group’s service project on the MLK Day of Service
    • Organize a service project and have the service project posted to this website
