Martin Luther King Challenge

MLK Challenge

Mark your calendars: January 20, 2014

“Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The MLK Challenge is an annual service event held on MLK Day in January. Participating students are randomly assigned to groups and given a service project at a local organization that they must work together to complete by the end of the day. By serving their community, students celebrate the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The MLK Challenge on January 20, 2014 is an annual Service-Learning Center 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, 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, we will reassemble 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 to the CPCC community only. We will provide transportation, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Participants are asked to dress for anything. 

Registration begins 8:00 a.m. the day of the event in the Student Commons area of the Overcash Building on central Campus.
