Community Volunteers: MLK Jr. Day of Service 2020

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90045

Date: 1/20/2020 Spots Remaining: 2


In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., this year we'll be serving at an LAUSD STEAM middle school near LAX. Volunteers will enjoy a breakfast program with special guest speaker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, live music, and a volunteer fair. After breakfast, teams of volunteers will paint, plant, and beautify the campus.

Impact: Studies have shown that student achievement can be affected either positively or negatively by the school environment. School beautification is a great way to increase morale and motivate students. Beautiful and clean facilities push students in the right direction by giving them an uplifting, positive space to work and grow in. They will come into school knowing that someone took the time to take care of a place they call home for eight or more hours of the day.
Volunteer Project: Volunteers will put their skills to use in various beautification projects throughout the school campus. Our goal is to enhance the learning environment with color, fresh paint, and murals.

Date: January 20th 2020
