The universal messages of justice, democracy, hope and love that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached have inspired the design of the National Memorial in his honor on the National Mall. MLK Memorial Volunteers will spend time roving the memorial and interacting with visitors from all over the world, who have come to learn more about the man and the Civil Rights movement of which he was a part. The location of the memorial on the banks of the Tidal Basin means that there will also be special volunteer opportunities available during the National Cherry Blossom Festival. National Mall and Memorial Parks' mission is to manage, preserve, and maintain the monuments, memorials, and historic sites in the heart of Washington, D.C., and to provide opportunities for all Americans and park visitors to understand and be inspired by their significance. You can help advance this mission by volunteering in the park. Volunteers interact with visitors and assist Park Rangers in answering questions, giving talks, and leading tours of the monuments and memorials.
