Make It a Day ON, Not a Day OFF

Truman’s Multicultural Affairs Center will host the 8th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Collegiate Challenge Jan. 18.

The goal this year is to help 150 student volunteers make it a day ON, not a day OFF. These students will be divided into teams and go out into the local community and help community partners with projects or “challenges” that they may or may not have the time or resources to complete. The challenges require students to use critical thinking, problem solving and other skills as they address social issues and help the greater Kirksville community. In addition to unifying diverse participants around a service project, students will have the opportunity to reflect upon, honor and celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King.
