UMSL MLK Day of Service

MLK Day of Service is a national initiative to make the recognition of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday a “day on, not a day off." Volunteers learn that small changes can have a huge impact within their own neighborhood. Past projects undertaken on MLK Day of Service have included painting, landscaping and remodeling houses for low-income families and homeowners, tutoring elementary school students, and upgrading school classrooms and resource centers. 

MLK Day of Service is open to anyone 13+. Minors must be accompanied by an adult and waivers must be signed by the parent/guardian (sent in advance). 

The priority registration deadline is 5 pm on January 9 (or when sites are full, whichever comes first). After that date, we cannot guarantee shirts/shirt sizes for volunteers.

UMSL Students, Staff and Faculty will access sites registrations and descriptions at
