Stand Up and Serve!
MLK Day of Service is January 21, 2013 (9 AM - 1 PM)
Georgia Perimeter College's EDGE Initiative (Office of the Quality Enhancement Plan) is pleased to present “Stand Up and Serve,” a day of service and remembrance in celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. King once said, "Everyone can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don't have to know Einstein's theory of relativity to serve. You don't have to know the second law of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." In this spirit, GPC is offering two weeks of activities that celebrate Dr. King's legacy through service and social action. Join us for MLK Day of Service on January 21, 2013. Take a look at the schedule of events and Day of Service activities to find a way to get involved!
The MLK Day of Service is funded in part by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency that strengthens communities through service. Below is a video from our 2010 MLK Service Challenge event.
