MLK Day of Service Portland, Oregon - We are the Dream

Project Leader Description

Oregon Campus Compact (ORCC), and the colleges and universities of the Portland metropolitan area are gearing up for this year’s 2015 Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Day of Service. We would like to invite you to be a Student Leader!


On Monday, January 19, 2015 over 1,000 students from Portland-area colleges and universities will unite to serve the Portland-area community. MLK Day is a collaborative effort of Portland-area universities and colleges facilitated by ORCC. To honor and commemorate Dr. King’s legacy, we unity our community to serve the places that we live, work, and study. Annually, it is the largest mobilization of college students in the country on MLK Day!

Looks like it may be too late to sign up as a leader? I’m working on doing a student club through BCT and our sponsor passed this along. I may be able to get some students to show up. I’d kinda like for us to be able to stick together if possible.
