Volunteer Opportunities for Youth Religious Education

Our religious education program success depends on trained, background checked volunteers from the congregation. If you have been visiting Emerson UUC for more than six months and have taken the “Pathways to Membership” classes or have transferred in good standing from another UU Congregation, please share your time and talent in the Religious Education programs. Our Director of Religious Education will be happy to talk to you about volunteer opportunities.

Members can sign up online to volunteer. 

Volunteering Requirements for Registered Families

Is there a volulnteer requirement for families with children in RE?
Yes, we ask that a each member with a child in the RE program to sign up for a minimum of six volunteer events each year (August - July). Volunteer events include assisting our paid caregiver Ms. Christine in the Nursery or at Playtime (indoor/outdoor).  New members will be scheduled after joining the congregation.  Our program on Sunday mornings is a cooperative effort; even if your children are beyond nursery age, our volunteer staffing demands for the growing nursery-prek-kindergarten programs need your help.
