MLK Challenge offers day of service, needs volunteers

Spark BannerThe MLK Challenge 2007 is fast approaching. The 3rd annual event will be held on Monday, January 15, 2007 from 8am to 5pm.

The MLK Challenge is an annual service event that celebrates the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The day incorporates an educational kick-off, service projects, and a reflection wrap-up.

The day begins with an introduction to King’s life and lessons. Participating students are then randomly assigned to groups and given a service project at a local organization to complete. Students must work together and utilize problem-solving skills in order to finish their task. At the end of the day, students reassemble together to reflect on their accomplishments in a guided discussion. This helps students process all that happened during the day.

This event is free and open only to the CPCC community. We provide transportation, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Participants are asked to dress appropriately.

Registration is ongoing and on the day of the event, it begins at 8am in the Student Commons area of the Overcash Academic and Performing Arts Center on Central Campus.
