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.
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.
