Join us for the 11th Annual MLK Challenge
January 19, 2015
8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
The MLK Challenge on January 19th is an annual Service-Learning Center event that celebrates the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The day incorporates an educational kick-off, service projects, and a reflection wrap-up. The day begins with an introduction to King’s life and lessons, and then students are 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, students will reassemble to reflect on their accomplishments in a guided discussion. This helps students process all that happened during the day. Click HERE to read student reflections from previous MLK Challenges.
This event is FREE and open to the CPCC community only. We will provide transportation to service sites, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Check-in begins at 8:00 a.m. at Central Campus in the Student Commons area of the Overcash Building. Participants are asked to dress comfortably and be prepared for anything, including service projects outdoors.
