The Center for Community Engagement and Service (CCES) is AU’s hub for community outreach, volunteering and service-learning opportunities in Washington, DC and beyond. Being part of the DC community is an important part of the student experience at AU, and CCES is where students come to connect.
CCES will be hosting our annual MLK Day of Service 2023 on January 16th. Students will be organized into groups to head out and do service in the DC area. We will kick-off with breakfast and registration at 9am in Butler Boardroom. Following breakfast there will be an activity followed by service at one of our various community partner sites!
