Clark College will be participating in the MLK Day of Service, a national effort to bring Americans together to serve their neighbors and communities. Clark students will have the opportunity to provide a half-day "mini camp" for children at the Clark County Family YMCA. About five students are needed in each of three sessions: a music class (12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.), a sports class (1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.), and an art class (2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.). Other volunteer opportunities could include serving as a photographer, painting faces, making balloon animals, etc.
All volunteers must complete a background check form and attend a pre-service orientation session to help prepare them for the event.
