City Year Dallas, Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service
City Year is an education nonprofit organization founded in 1988 dedicated to helping students and schools succeed. The Dallas affiliate partners with one Elementary school, three Middle Schools, and three High Schools providing student, classroom, and whole school support, intended to help students stay in school and on track to graduate high school.
Join City Year Dallas on Monday, January 21, 2018, for a "day on" of service at Francisco "Pancho" Medrano Middle School. In the morning, we will transform the physical campus through the collective efforts of 200 community members. Together we will paint murals, garden, construct and complete other critical projects identified by the site. In the afternoon, we will be hosting a panel discussion and breakout conversations around social justice issues that affect the Dallas community. Coffee, snacks and lunch provided for physical service volunteers!
