New Year, Better Choices

New Year’s Resolutions are something most people try to make in an effort to make a positive change in their life. Whether it is health related, habit related, or introducing a new activity they haven’t tried before, many use it as their motivation to start making changes for the better.

However, January 17th is Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day, and in the spirit of that we encourage you all and your Club members to ditch the idea of a New Year’s Resolution and make a commitment to positive change all year ‘round! Keep reading for some ideas you can use to ensure positive change is always happening!

  • Encouraging your Club members, especially your Keystone and Torch Clubs, to commit to a monthly service project (and not just on the MLK Day of Service) is a great way to keep them engaged and be agents of positive change in their community all throughout the year. If possible, have them reach out through a community forum so that they have no shortage of ideas and will know exactly what the community needs/wants.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"

– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

MLK Day is a federally designated holiday created to honor the work of Dr. King each January with a Day of Service. As such, it is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service!

This year, on January 15, 2018 celebrate the work of Dr. King with Club kids and staff by taking part in youth-led service projects! Projects will look different for each Club and each community. No matter what type of project your organization commits to, make it fun! Getting youth involved in choosing the project will promote their engagement and cultivate a meaningful connection to their work.

MLK Day of Service is a day on, not a day off. It is a time to share the gift of giving with others. Is your Club participating? We would love to see what is happening in each community! If you are on Facebook or Instagram, use #NativeClubs to have your project appear on the homepage!
