Martin Luther King, Jr., National Day of Service

The Martin Luther King, Jr., National Day of Service provides an opportunity for communities to come together to honor Dr. King’s life and teachings through service. Since 2008, Campaign Consultation has worked with the Corporation for National and Community Service to assist stakeholders across the nation with planning and developing community-wide service initiatives that address our nation’s most challenging social problems.

Campaign Consultation has provided constituent groups with project support services through the content and technical design and development of a website with many tools and resources, webinars, online newsletters, planning toolkits and guides, and social media support. We provided training for volunteers on the use of social media to further promote MLK Day and to deliver real-time updates from the field on MLK Day. As a result, MLK Day, as a national day of service, continues to grow annually with hundreds of thousands of Americans in all 50 states participating in over 10,000 projects–making the MLK Day of Service truly “a day on, not a day off.”

The training and technical assistance provided by Campaign Consultation is designed to assist nonprofit organizations and communities with creating projects that will advance their overall goals for the community, contribute to sustaining critical year-round initiatives, and help to create the Beloved Community of which Dr. King spoke. We invite you to sign up for one of the many volunteer opportunities on the MLK Day of Service site.
