BOSTON (AP) — Student “ambassadors” from around the state gathered in Boston for a day of community service.

The eighth-graders, chosen by local educators to represent the state’s 351 cities and towns, took part in a Youth Town Meeting with Gov. Deval Patrick at the Statehouse on Saturday.

Later, they performed volunteer work at one of five non-profit or educational organizations around the city.

The program, called Project 351 Day of Service, was launched by Patrick in 2010 to mark the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King.

The student ambassadors were joined by local athletes Nate Solder of the New England Patriots, Jared Sullinger of the Boston Celtics and Andrew Ference of the Boston Bruins.
