About volunteering: A volunteer orientation is provided when you first arrive to help. We provide a unique cultural and economically diverse volunteer experience.

About MLK Day:  MLK Day is a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. Together, we step up to make our communities more equitable. Dr. King believed this change was possible, and he acknowledged and fought for systemic change. His example is our call to action.
