  • 8:15am -- Welcome and Dismissal to sites - Hendrix Student Center Ballrooms A&B

  • 8:15am - 9:00am - Travel to Sites (Dismissal will be based upon travel distance to your particular site to be able to arrive at 9:00am)

Listed on the Volunteer Registration Form are the agencies and sites requesting volunteers.  There are both on-campus and off-campus sites available.  Further information about the agency and the type of work the agency has requested is available by clicking on the agency's name.  Please select the site you would like to volunteer and complete your volunteer information.  Please note you are only allowed to volunteer at ONE site during the MLK Day of Service.

IMPORTANT: If you are a part of a student organization and would like to volunteer at a common site, we suggest deciding on an agency ahead of time prior to registering.  Once a common site is decided, members must register individually.  Site changes will not be accommodated the morning of the MLK Day of Service.
