Volunteer in our programs

 

Children and Youth Programs have shifted during the pandemic to create online, offline, and hybrid programming. We continue to lift up our mission of building community, promoting justice, exploring spirituality, and practicing love. In our online and interactive classes, we need two adults in each room. Offline, we need your help organizing, strategizing, and reaching out to our families to stay connected and help provide support in whatever ways families need it. How might you be a part of this vital work?

Contact Director of Religious Education, Amanda Uluhan for more information about how you can help to center children, families, and youth at East Shore today!

A Call for Volunteers: we use Sign-up Genius for volunteer management and scheduling!

  • Two adults for each Zoom classroom
  • Volunteers can be co-leaders or “seconds”
  • Age groups: 0-4, 4-8, 8-12, 12-14, 14-18
  • Background check for all volunteers who work with children, youth, and vulnerable populations. We use UUA Safety Guidelines.
  • Opportunities for adult involvement include: Kid’s groups, Youth groups, Fishbowls, Coming of Age mentors, and Offline!….

INTERESTED IN OFFERING A CLASS AT EAST SHORE?

 

Congregants are vital to ensuring continual learning opportunities for adults at East Shore. Your class ideas are welcome, as they may offer another learning opportunity to what East Shore provides.

Please fill out the form below to begin a conversation about hosting a new class or workshop at East Shore. We’ll get back to you with follow-up questions and to discuss your potential class.

Some considerations are:

  • If you are teaching on a topic, as opposed to hosting a discussion, you are expected to have some experience or credentials to do so.
  • Adult programs can be one-time offerings, a series of limited sessions, or ongoing groups.
  • Know the rules about political action and finances for classes before filling out the form.
  • Money is only charged for Adult programs when covering the cost of materials used in a class. Any money charged must be accounted for and given to ESUC for deposit—you can then be reimbursed from those funds.
  • As you develop your class offering, consider the promotional write up and image that will add interest to your description. Let us know if you would like help.
