The MLK Children & Youth Program celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by providing a day of activities and events designed specifically for children and teens in grades K-12. Throughout these memorable years, these activities have been filled with fun, creativity, dialogue, and entertainment and included storytelling, guided discussions and group projects, skits, rap poetry, and various musical performances. The program is facilitated by capable adults, many of whom are professional educators, youth workers, or students in the School of Education who have experience working with children or who are preparing to become teachers.
Since its beginning in 1998, the MLK Children and Youth Program has attracted more than 9,600 K-12 student participants from school communities throughout southeastern Michigan. Once again, the School of Education, School of Social Work, and the Office of Academic and Multicultural Initiatives invite all K-12 students throughout the southeastern Michigan communities to participate in another MLK Children & Youth Program to celebrate and commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
