Student Registration: Clifton M. Jones Student Leadership Conference & MLK Day of Service

Conference Home::::Community Partner Service Request

Know. Be. Do.


Student registration is open and will be limited to the first 600 students to sign up. We anticipate that these spaces will fill quickly, so be sure to register ASAP!


Students should dress in warm, casual attire that they are comfortable getting a little dirty! Please remember to bring a water bottle, wear close-toed shoes, and arrive at check-in on January 16th at 8:00am ready to lead and serve!



We have a variety of excellent programs planned for our breakout sessions. Some highlights from previous years include “The Hunger Games: Lessons in Leadership and Social Change," “Lost in Translation: Understanding and Communicating with Different Personality Types," and “The Toughest Job You'll Ever Love: Peace Corps.” Presenters include graduate students, faculty, and staff from all areas of the University as well as professionals from the greater Knoxville community! 


All student participants will spend the afternoon in service to our community. Be sure to dress in WARM, COMFORTABLE clothing with CLOSED-TOED SHOES to best prepare you to serve! Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate specific requests to serve at individual sites or with specific participants. This is a great opportunity to interact with new friends, and to learn something new about the Knoxville community! Projects include working with local Boys & Girls Clubs, Second Harvest Food Bank, YWCA, Young Williams Animal Center, Habitat for Humanity and more! Click here to learn a bit more about the community partners with whom you may work!
