About the MLK Day Program

A few of the ways Steward plans to celebrate our annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

Dear Spartans,

Steward students, parents, alumni, and friends of our community are invited to join us on Monday, January 18 for a voluntary celebration of the work, words, and life of Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
As many of you may recall, three years ago we began the tradition of providing programming for families on this holiday. In preparation for our virtual events on January 18, we asked members of our community to respond to the prompt "I wonder what MLK would do/say/think…" through original art, music, poetry, or other visual mediums. On Monday, January 18, we will share a compilation of those video submissions.
 
In addition to that video, here are some ways for you to get involved in this year’s MLK Day of Service:
  • AmeriCorps provides support for finding volunteer opportunities for MLK Day and throughout the year. This link also shares a short video about Dr. King’s legacy and the importance of service.
  • Compassion Games is a “community experience that invites people around the world to inspire one another to reveal and promote acts of compassion that better our lives, our communities, and all life on Earth.” This is a wonderful opportunity for both individuals and families.
While our virtual programming on January 18 is optional, we hope you will participate! Please email Campus Life and Community Stewardship Coordinator Rashad Lowery if you have any questions.
