MLK Day 2022

MLK Day Emerging Strong: Serving Through the Pandemic

Monday, January 17, 2022 , 10 am – 12pm CT

The Imani Pearls Community Development Foundation (IPCDF), in partnership with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, Chi Omega Omega, and Tau Mu chapters invites you to attend our annual MLK Day of Service on Monday, January 17, 2022, virtually. This year’s theme is Emerging Strong: Serving Through the Pandemic.

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s perpetual call of non-violence and building community, youth in 7th through 12th grades have been invited to attend this transformative event designed to empower and strengthen the community. Our virtual breakout sessions offer youth direct interaction with various professionals and community leaders. Topics will cover social-emotional wellness, adapting to our “new normal”, entrepreneurship, and other leadership topics. Our goal is to ultimately foster space for this generation to step into the type of leader they want to be in their communities.

During recent world challenges, new young leaders have emerged as innovative, problem-solving, and service-oriented trailblazers. Students have selflessly given their time and talents to positively impact our communities. To acknowledge youth civic leadership, outstanding trailblazers will be selected for their contributions to Activism and Community Service.

Youth may also apply for the following scholarships:

2022 Martin Luther King Jr. Activism Award: To a student who is standing up for a cause or difficult problem in society to improve the lives of others.

2022 Coretta Scott King Community Service Award: To a student who strives to go beyond the call of duty to make sure their communities are a better place to live while focusing on a better tomorrow for today’s youth.

Special Guest Host – Tone Kapone (107.5 WGCI Radio)
