Challenge

City Year Washington, DC supports civic engagement and service projects across the district. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 18, 2016, is a "day on" for City Year. Each year, City Year honors the legacy of Dr. King by organizing a day of service for nearly 1,000 community and corporate volunteers.

Solution

In just one day, volunteers will transform high-need schools into more engaging, educational and vibrant places for students to learn and play.Service projects will include painting murals, maintaining playgrounds, building benches and planting green spaces.

Long-Term Impact

Each year, our service days provide hundreds of thousands of dollars in value to local schools and community centers. In the 2014-15 school year, City Year facilitated over 11,000 hours of volunteerism from over 2,000 volunteers.
