Sigma Alpha Lambda has teamed up with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) as a part of the MLK Day Service Network. In doing so, Sigma Alpha Lambda members have the opportunity to connect with local MLK Day projects each January and to earn a special award for their participation in those events called the “Drum Major For Service PVSA”. This PVSA is specifically designed for the MLK Day events around the country and includes a certificate and a letter from the President of the United States.
This partnership gives SAL members another way to make a direct impact in their communities and on their campuses. The Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday is a national day of service. Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a “day on…not a day off”. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together and serve. Service is an important part of the mission of Sigma Alpha Lambda and this initiative allows SAL members a chance to start their year off making a difference in the lives of others.
