King and Park Ranger at March on Washington
Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service - January 20, 2014
Make it a Day On; NOT a Day Off!
On January 20, 2014 millions throughout the nation will come together to volunteer and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who never stopped asking the question, "What are you doing for others?" The Martin Luther King Day of Service is a moment to work together to fulfill King's vision for a better America - it's a day "on" instead of a day off.
There are countless ways to get involved this coming MLK Day. Join us here at Valley Forge National Historical Park on Monday, January 20th as we plan to honor King's legacy with hands on environmental and maintenance projects.

Volunteer sign-in and walk-up registration begins at 8:00 a.m. in the park theater. A screening of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s I Have A Dream speech will take place in the theater at 9:00 a.m. prior to the beginning of the work day. Walk-in registration ends at 9:30 a.m.

Learn more about The King Legacy of Service in this video by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
