up. We will begin with an introduction to King’s life and lessons, students are then randomly assigned to groups and given a service project at a local organization to complete. Students must work together and utilize problem-solving skills in order to finish their task.

At the end of the day, we will reassemble to reflect on their accomplishments in a guided discussion. This helps students process all that happened during the day. This event is free and open to the CPCC community only. We will provide transportation, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Participants are asked to dress for anything. 

Registration begins 8 a.m. the day of the event in the Student Commons area of the Overcash Building.
