Global Day of Service


Make a difference in March and support King's Global Day of Service  

Each year in March, students, staff and alumni take part in a range of volunteering activities across the world as part of King’s Global Day of Service. It’s a great way for everyone to collectively give back and live out King’s ‘ethos’ of service, making a difference in local and national communities. 

Service is in our DNA at King’s. Founded in March 1829 to serve society; giving back is an important part of what we do. In March 2023, King’s Global Day of Service will return to bring alumni, students and staff together to volunteer and make a difference in their local and national communities. It’s a great way for everyone to give back and live out King’s ‘ethos’ of service. Further details about all the events taking place for this year’s Global Day of Service will be appearing soon, but if in the meantime you’d like to organise an activity of your own, please reach out to us at

GDoS Infographic (Newsletter)In March 2022, the King’s ethos of serving society was stronger than ever with 575 members of the King’s community contributing over 2,900 volunteering hours across 32 countries. From preserving natural spaces in London and coaching basketball, to mentoring students and digitising books for the public domain, King’s students, staff and alumni used their knowledge, skills and experiences to give back and make a positive difference.
