Calling All CCV Students for MLK Day

In commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, CCV Burlington’s Student Advisory Board will be organizing a service event on January 21, 2008. Working with the Americorps program and local non-profits throughout Chittenden County, CCV students will have the opportunity to honor MLK’s legacy by volunteering at a number of different service sites. We will be meeting in our 119 Pearl St. building at 11:00 AM to talk a little about King’s life and commitment to community service before heading down to City Hall at 12:00 PM to sign-up for some service work. Students will be able to choose from a number of different volunteer opportunities addressing many social issues (such as race and gender discrimination, environmental and sustainability concerns, poverty, etc.). We will conclude our day with a free community dinner with live music and entertainment at 5:00 PM in Contois Auditorium at City Hall.

Please come and meet some new folks and commemorate the life of one of America’s greatest human rights leaders the way he would have wanted you too, as a “Day On, Not a Day Off.”

For more information please email Ian Boyd at ian.boyd@ccv.edu.
