Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service


Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most urgent question is: what are you doing for others?”

Each year, the University of Washington and United Way of King County work together to organize students and community members throughout Seattle to join people across the country in an effort to answer that question with service.

About the event

This event is a part of the President’s United We Serve initiative which, calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.

The Day of Service begins with a community building Kick-Off event where participants are able to connect with fellow volunteers over morning refreshments and learn more about the legacy of service Martin Luther King Jr has inspired. After the Kick-Off, groups set-off to make a difference at local nonprofit organizations throughout the city.

Get involved

MLK Day of Service is a great way to engage in community projects, meet new people, and learn about the legacy of service that MLK Day represents.

We will be looking to recruit team-leaders and volunteers beginning in November. Please check out our information page for more about being Project Leader or participating as an individual. Please email us at with any question or comments.

Thank you to our sponsors!
