Global Citizen is non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting civic engagement, community volunteering, civic responsibility, and sustained active citizenship among diverse groups, particularly young people. Global Citizen promotes democracy building, voter education and participation, locally and globally. We bring together people of all ages and backgrounds to build diverse partnerships through serving others, thus realizing how much more we have in common than our difference.

Programs run by Global Citizen include the Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, the largest King Day event in the nation and MLK365, which promotes year-round volunteer service and civic engagement. We provide a range of services, including: technical training and assistance to organizations interested in hosting King Day of Service projects, tracking all King Day of Service projects and volunteers throughout the region, and matching interested groups and individuals with volunteer project opportunities. Global Citizen supports organizations and individuals to continue active citizenship throughout the year.
