“Greatness is determined by service!”
– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The King Center offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups. We have volunteer opportunities to match a wide range of interests and time commitment.
Some positions are specialized and might require specific skills as well as background checks. Other positions only require a desire and willingness to volunteer.
Join us as a volunteer as we work to create The Beloved Community!
The King Center hosts special events throughout the year. Special events volunteers will support events such as the Beloved Community International Expo and King Holiday in volunteer roles such as greeter, floater, registration and more.
We are looking for talented interns interested in gaining hands on experience in a nonprofit. An internship with The King Center provides current undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to learn about the day-to-day work of nonprofits and apply their skills in a professional setting.
The Docent Program is for high school junior/senior, or college students interested in building valuable skills. Docents are responsible for greeting King Center visitors and sharing information about Dr. King, Mrs. King and The King Center. Docents will assist with special events and activities as needed and more.
As we continue to expand our advocacy programs and events, we are looking for volunteers who are passionate about political empowerment (voting rights), environmental justice, criminal justice reform, and education. Volunteers will support with social response activities and more.
We have various ways for group volunteers to get involved. Group volunteers can support special events, various on campus activities, advocacy efforts and more.
