The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is a defining moment each year when Americans across the country step up to make our communities more equitable and take action to build the Beloved Community of Dr. King’s dream. Observed each year on the third Monday in January, MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service, and AmeriCorps has led this effort for the past quarter century.

9/11 Day

The September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance is a chance to help others in tribute to those killed and injured on September 11, 2001, first responders, and the countless others who serve to defend the nation’s freedom at home and around the globe. On 9/11 Day, Americans will step forward to serve in a remarkable spirit of unity, honor, and compassion.
