Winter is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about the 2014 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service! MLK, Jr. Day of Service is on January 20th, 2014, and the University of Washington Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center is partnering with the United Way of King County to coordinate a county-wide event honoring the life and legacy of Dr. King. Each year, this event engages over a thousand volunteers in service projects from all over the Greater King County region.
We are currently recruiting for Project Leaders! Project leaders select a specific service site, and are responsible for recruiting volunteers to participate in their project. They will sign volunteers up with United Way, and help with facilitation at Kickoff and their service site during the Day of Service. Project Leader Registration Opens November 12th!
What does it mean to be a Project Leader? Tasks include:
• Recruit volunteers to join your MLK Day project • Communicate with your host organization • Communicate with volunteers who sign up for your project • Use the United Way online registration system to sign upand register group members • Help frame why this event & your specific service project are important for the volunteers • Coordinate t-shirt pick for your group members
If you are unable to fill your project with people you know, there will be an opportunity to open your project up to individual volunteers in early January!
You can also read our Volunteer Project Leader Resource Manual by visiting http://www.washington.edu/carlson/register-for-an-mlk-day-service-project/.
We will be holding two Project Leader Info Sessions. These sessions are not mandatory, but are a great opportunity to learn more about signing up for a project and recruiting volunteers, as well as using United Way of King County’s interface.
You may attend one of the following Project Leader Info Sessions:
Thursday, November 7, 4-5pm in MGH 173R
Tuesday, November 13, 12-1pm in MGH 171E

Do you volunteer? Are you committed to giving back? Do you want to make a difference?
The Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center will be offering a Winter Quarter 2013 course entitled “Are Do-Gooders Doing Good?: Critical Perspectives on Civic Engagement” (General Studies 348; SLN 14377). They would like to invite you to join in a critical reflection on what it means to “do good.”
General Studies 348 will offer a hands-on opportunity to explore the concept of civic engagement. Students will critically reflect on their own service experiences through the lens of several leadership theories, engage with principles of community work, and learn from the experiences of community leaders. The course will draw heavily on students’ involvement in service and will weave these together with elements of other academic coursework and future academic/career goals.
- The course has a required service-learning component (20-40 hours working in the community during the quarter).
- Students are encouraged to utilize current service commitments toward this requirement, though individualized support will be offered to those looking for a service opportunity.
- This is a three-credit course that is offered as credit/no credit.
- Sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30-5:20PM in Mary Gates Hall.
Those interested in the course should email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and/or to request an add code. Space is limited. Add codes will be distributed as requests are received.
