WATERLOO — The Waterloo Center for the Arts will host “A Day of Service” on Monday to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The free public event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. will include informational leadership, health, wellness and personal responsibility workshops — most involving arts as a learning tool — for kindergarten through 12th grades and adults.

The Project Pause video will be played during a “Future Leaders” workshop for teens, led by Michael Muhammad.

“Our youth need to know that adults believe in them,” said event co-producer Cherie Chillin’ Kabba. “They need to feel that we care enough to give our time, talents and treasures to help build leadership skills from the age of 8 to 80.”

Students will be divided by age group to participate in workshops, including: ASL, Learning American Sign Language; Spoken Word, Developing Self Expression and Awareness; Elementary Art project, Learning the Art of Collaboration; and Dance, A celebration of Dr. King and Human Rights.

The day will culminate in a group presentation of the day’s activities including a special Happy Birthday performance in honor of King. The public is invited to attend the presentation and participate in the celebration from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Schoitz River Rooms.
