AU's MLK Celebration

The Center for Community Engagement and Service celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his commitment to service. The MLK Day of Service event provides the AU Community the opportunity to participate in engage directly with the local community. Individuals have the ability to learn more about different neighborhoods and explore the issues of concern that impact District communities. This one day event will encourage students to continue their explorations of the city and the concerns of local residents.


Last year over 270 volunteers from both AU and the local community collaborated to carry out the event. These individuals worked with 12 NGO's whom represented seven different sectors of public service: Education, HIV/AID, Homelessness, Hunger, Senior-Citizens, Women's Health, and Youth Development.
