Global Citizen is a non-profit organization dedicated to civic engagement among diverse groups through volunteering, education, community building, service learning, economic opportunity, leadership development and dialogue. Global Citizen brings together people of all ages and backgrounds through active citizenship and civic responsibility that result in breaking down barriers, building understanding, and fostering ongoing, diverse partnerships. Global Citizen Programs include the annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service and year-round MLK365. Issues of focus include poverty, homelessness, at-risk young people, race relations, public health, safety, digital inclusion, veterans, energy and the environment.

MLK365 is Global Citizen’s year-round program that promotes sustainable civic engagement and volunteer opportunities. MLK365 includes:

  • Community Volunteer Program
  • Neighbors in Action Community Leadership Workshops
  • Service Clubs – service learning curriculum
  • Quarterly discussions on race, class, and power
  • Mission365: Connecting Military and Civilian Service on the Home Front


We are a small organization, but our impact is widespread. The Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service is the oldest and largest King Day of Service event in the country, engaging over 135,000 volunteers in some 1,800 community projects in 2015. In the past, we’ve hosted events with Vice President Joe Biden, Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee, and Wendy Spencer, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Be a part of the largest Martin Luther King Day event in the nation.

The Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, the largest King Day event in the nation, and Global Citizen, promotes year-round volunteer service and civic engagement. Thanks to organizers like you, last winter tens of thousands of people throughout the tri-state region, including children, seniors and families, received vital services and resources as part of the 21st annual Greater Philadelphia King Day of Service. We hope you will again join us as a partner on Monday, January 16, 2017 for the 22nd annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service.
