D.C. United Marks MLK Day of Service with Second Annual Student Mentorship Day

D.C. United Staff Host Virtual Mentorship Day

Few have left the type of lasting legacy and impact that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has left on our world.

In honor of his unwavering commitment to serving others and National Mentoring Month, D.C. United staff came together for its annual event to give back to the next generation of aspiring sports industry professionals during Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.

"D.C. United’s community values are Empowerment, Opportunity and Service. What better way to honor Dr. King’s legacy than by actively serving our community and uplifting young people through mentorship,” said Shanell Mosley, Director of Community Relations and Executive Director of the D.C. United Foundation.

“Like Dr. King we are committed to creating a path for access and success for young people. We hope that through our actions, others will be inspired to do the same.”

Collectively, D.C. United staff spent 1,630 minutes mentoring more than 62 college students across the country.

During the month of January and beyond, we encourage all to reflect on what Dr. King described as life’s most persistent and urgent question:

“What are you doing for others?”
