Be the Change You Wish to See: 2016 MLK National Day of Service

By: Terrica Mitchell, CPDC ServiceWorks


“New year, new me.”

It’s a frequently shared sentiment this time of year as we are eager to put our best foot forward for better days to come.

I believe this: the most liberating thing we can do is to be committed to becoming whomever we want to be 365 days a year. As humans we are constantly renewing–whether we realize it or not. No one day is the same as the next!

It does not take a new year to be the change you wish to see.

The upcoming Janaury 18 MLK National Day of Service is a great opportunity to put change in motion through one of the most powerful means: service to community.

The ServiceWorks team will be doing our part to reach young scholars at CPDC’s Northeast D.C. Mayfair Mansions community with a day-long leadership and professional development event focusing on practical skills including financial literacy, resume building, interviewing skills, professionalism and dressing for success and networking.2016_MLK_400x400

Do your part by getting  involved in the 2016 MLK National Day of Service. No gesture is too small to make a difference and you’ll be well on your way to evolving into the best you.
