Each year, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) spearheads the effort to encourage Americans to volunteer in their communities during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service and the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance.

On these days of service, CNCS provides tools and resources for organizations and individuals to become engaged in service activities, including grants to organizations to support volunteer projects across a state or throughout a multi-state region.

To find opportunities to serve during the 9/11 or MLK Day of Service, visit the pages for each event linked below on Serve.gov.
