Every year the Martin Luther King Jr (MLK) Seattle Celebration Committee organizes a large scale celebration in the only geographic jurisdiction named in Dr. King's honor. The 35th Annual MLK Seattle Celebration includes morning workshops, a rally, a march from Garfield High School to downtown, and a career fair back at Garfield. 

Career Fair Set-up and Support volunteers will help set-up for a job and training fair in Garfield's main building. Following the rally in the gym, volunteer roles include setting-up tables, posting signage, greeting and check-in for employers and participants, and helping direct parking. Following the fair, volunteers will help tidy up and get the school & classrooms ready for school. Prior to the return of marchers, volunteers can take turns getting lunch in the cafeteria.  Volunteers are identifiable by a T-shirt that is provided by the MLK Celebration Committee. Details on the career fair are being updated regularly on our website
