Please Join Us for a Day of Service on MLK Day!

January 14, 2013


In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and work, City Year Baton Rouge dedicates a “day on” instead of a “day off” every year in our community to honor him. This year City Year Baton Rouge is holding our first annual MLK Day of Service and Youth Summit  at Capitol Middle School on January 21, 2013 from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm.

City Year Baton Rouge will unite over 70 staff and corps members with over a 150 community volunteers and 200 students to honor Dr. King’s legacy. Our diverse group of volunteers will help realize Dr. King’s Beloved Community by demonstrating that Louisianans of all ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds, ages and beliefs can unite with a common purpose to bring about meaningful change.

Our volunteers will focus on three major project areas: the Capitol Middle School Peace Garden, School Spirit initiatives, and panel and tile murals for Capitol and our additional partner schools. The accomplishment of these projects will help create a creative and clean learning environment that will enable the students of Capitol Middle School, as well as our additional City Year schools to fully focus on excelling academically and growing personally.

We appreciate you considering this commitment to honoring Dr. King’s life work and mentoring our youth. Your presence shows our students that their future success is critical to our community.  The “day on” promises to be an inspiring experience and we hope to see you there!
