Athens MLK Day of Service is an annual celebration in support of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday and commitment to service. In 1994, Congress made the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday an official day of service. Athens, Georgia is one of the thousands of cities across the United States that decided to make this "A Day On and Not a Day Off."
Volunteer registration has ended. There will be no walk-up/day-of registration this year; all volunteers must have pre-registered to participate.
All CDC guidelines will be followed to limit the transmission of COVID-19. All volunteers must wear face coverings and social distance at all times.
In light of COVID-19, a special “choose your own adventure” option has been added for those not comfortable volunteering with in person and with a group. Those individuals may register and be a part of the MLK Day of Service by registering and documenting their service on the community registration site.
