When & Where
Global Citizen & MLK365
Global Citizen is non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting civic engagement, community volunteering, civic responsibility and sustained active citizenship among diverse groups, particularly young people.
Our issues of focus include poverty, homelessness, at-risk youth, education, public health, digital inclusion, energy and the environment. Global Citizen is a weaver of community webs, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds. We work to build diverse partnerships through volunteer service, thus realizing how much more we have in common than our differences.
Global Citizen was founded by Todd Bernstein, who helped Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Harris Wofford and Atlanta Congressman John Lewis create the National Martin Luther King Day of Service in 1994. Bernstein started the first local King Day of Service in Philadelphia in 1996.
MLK365 is a year-round program that promotes sustainable civic engagement and volunteer opportunities.
The goal of MLK365 is to ensure that Dr. King's legacy and principles are embraced throughout the entire year. The initiative emphasizes Dr. King's legacy of nonviolence, social justice, equality and excellence.
MLK365 serves as a year-round clearing house for continuing service opportunities, as well as supporting and designing volunteer programs for its partners.
