11:30am to 4:00pm (with breaks)


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 Resume and Application Support volunteers will assist attendees with their resumes and job applications at the job and training fair in Garfield's main building. This is the first year for the resume/application station.  We need you to have experience reviewing resumes and applications and be enthusiastic and positive as you help create a basic resume or review job applications.  You can also help set-up for the fair if you can arrive by 11:30. Prior to the return of marchers (2:30, approx.), 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
