Volunteers are what make our Religious Exploration program possible! We do not have paid staff to fill all of the needed positions to support our growing program. We have a variety of positions available to fulfill you on Sundays.
For the Nursery Care and Wisdom of Wondering, we ask that you choose the same Sunday for each month (every first Sunday, or every second Sunday, etc.) for a total of 9 hours for the year. Please note, we ask volunteers to attend a “Welcome Back to RE Dessert and Orientation” which will be held Tuesday evening, September 13 from 7:00 to 8:15 pm in the RE Commons. Sign-ups for volunteers will be in the foyer.
Nursery Care (infants – two yrs old) Volunteer = volunteers spend time playing with our youngest UUs. The service can be heard in the nursery.
Wisdom of Wondering (preschool – fifth grade) Class Support Volunteer = spend time with the children supporting the learning generated by the story lesson provided. If you are interested in reading a story and leading a discussion, this can be added to your volunteer role with advance planning.
Advisors for Chalice Youth (Middle School) and YRUU (High School) = one Sunday a month, one dinner meeting a month, one “First Friday” outing every third month, a possible weekend over-night outing in October, January, or April divided among advisors, as needed.
Social Justice Advisor = share your passion for social justice projects and help the youth develop volunteer opportunities and projects to benefit the community. This is the same Sunday each month. You will collaborate and be supported by one of the youth advisors.
UU Historical Interpreter= Study a famous UU, dress like the UU you choose, present information about your character and be able to answer questions from children/youth about your UU.
RE Team Member= Become a part of the Religious Exploration Team. Meetings are held monthly and communication is done via google group between meetings, as needed. RE Team members support the Religious Exploration program by being a part of discussions that are affecting the program. Help with special projects as needed and if available. Support the Director of Religious Exploration with Director goals and program goals.
