Our National Day of Service
“Everybody 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 only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.
The first ever FAMU National Day of Service will be held on January 15, 2016, in celebration of the Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday. Through this National Day of Service, the FAMU community will join thousands across the nation to commemorate Dr. King’s legacy.
FAMU alumni have an unparalleled tradition of service throughout the country. Many have risen to the challenge to “change the world” and, indeed, are doing just that as volunteers in their professional lives, the nonprofit sector, and as elected officials.
This year, we are challenging FAMU alumni, students, faculty and friends to come together on January 15 to serve local communities. If you are not able to serve on that day, there will be additional days to serve on January 16-18.
Projects will be led by alumni, and information on locations and service projects will be submitted through this website. And this is just the beginning. FAMU related service opportunities will be made available throughout the year and can be found by contacting your local chapter.
