Students in field

2019 MLK Day of Service volunteer site signups now open

November 28, 2018

Student volunteers at Barkell Elementary during MLK Day of Service 2018. Students can now sign up to volunteer during the 2019 MLK Day of Service.

Students participating in Finlandia University’s fourth annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service are invited to sign up for their service site now.

Dr. King was a vibrant and dynamic leader for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement. Finlandia University and the local community have combined efforts to renew discussions about equality and diversity awareness as well as provide service to our local community.  In recognition and celebration of this holiday, all regular classes are cancelled so that students and faculty have the opportunity to get out and provide community service.

Sites range from Calumet to Houghton and include activities aimed at helping people of all ages – from toddlers to senior citizens. Volunteer sites include St. Vincent de Paul, South Range Elementary School in Hancock, The Lighthouse at Hancock, New Power Tour Inc. and more!

Students will also have the opportunity to attend a worship service on Sunday and a featured film on Thursday of that week.
