MLK Young Leader's Weekend 2015

  • January 17, 2015–January 19, 2015

A three day Pre-College program event held in January around the day of celebration for Martin Luther King. This program is geared towards equipping young leaders to lead effectively in every aspect of their live.

During their three day stay at Calvin College, students will be participating in a host of featured workshops, seminars, community service-learning, and dorm life and campus fun with Calvin College students. The weekend is designated to explore the philosophy of Martin Luther King Jr and the Civil Right movement in affecting positive social change.
