  • 9/11 Day of Service

    9/11 Day of Service is your opportunity to get up, get out, and do something! 9/11 Day is the nation's largest annual day of charitable engagement. In 2013, more than 47 million people from through the U.S. and in 150 countries observed September 11 by performing good deeds that help others. The goal of 9/11 Day is to provide a positive way for all people to forever remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks, and remind people of the importance of working more closely together in peace to improve our world. This event provides an excellent opportunity for everyone to experience impactful service alongside fellow citizens.

    This year's 9/11 Day of Service is being held on Saturday, Sept. 8 from 9 am - 12:30 pm meeting at BBC's Panther Square.  (If requested, buses will be leaving from MMC at 7:30 am)

  • MLK Day of Service

    The MLK Day of Service became a National Day of Service in 1994 and has been known as a "Day On, Not a Day Off" ever since. Its purpose is to bring to life Dr. King's teachings by bringing the community together and celebrating his vision of freedom and a unified diverse community. Every year, FIU students, faculty, staff, and friends of the university come together to create solutions to social problems in the community.
