Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service in Napa County

Monday, January 17th, 2022

While many see Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a day off, we see it as a "day on." It's an opportunity to start your year in the spirit of volunteerism and service, continuing the legacy Dr. King, who spent his life working to better the lives of others.

Join us in making #MLKDay a day "on" by participating in one or more of these volunteer opportunities happening in Napa County during the month of January:

Napa Lighted Art Festival / Art After Dark

The Napa Lighted Art Festival is a celebration of creative arts, technology, lights, and supports innovative techniques using light and light technologies as a growing art medium.

This walkable outdoor experience is FREE in Downtown Napa. In 2022 we will feature 8 lighted art sculptures for 8 weeks. Bring the family and experience the magic of the Napa Lighted Art Festival!

Attend the art experience here!

Mission Statement

We know that passion alone isn't enough when it comes to creating strong nonprofits. That's why we work with aspiring and established leaders every day to help them build the skills and connections that can take their impact to the next level. With confident and prepared leaders, our nonprofits will be better equipped to create healthy, happy communities. CVNL has engaged individuals in volunteerism continuously for more than 50 years and expanded to Napa county in July 2014. Every day, passionate individuals like you dedicate their work to advancing our communities, vulnerable populations, natural landscapes, and cultural institutions. But without the critical know-how in operational essentials like fundraising, board governance, and volunteer recruitment, their causes may fall short of their potential. CVNL brings local leaders the expert guidance and professional resources they need to build resilient, impactful organizations.
