Transform Your Smoldering Interest: Be a Social Justice Catalyst

The Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice has added programs to better train the next generation of leaders on issues of social justice

Check out opportunities in experiential learning, youth justice training and global justice internships.         

  • Experiential Learning Journeys: Transformative journeys to Haiti, Mexico, India, and several U.S. locations will introduce you and your congregation to the justice work of UUA and UUSC partners, and help you make the connection to struggles in your own community.
  • Youth Justice Trainings: We’re adding new trainings each year where high school youth gain inspiration through a terrific combination of justice theory and hands-on experience with our partners. This summer we’ll be in Boston, New Orleans, and Seattle, with a daylong intro session at UUA General Assembly in Providence, RI.
  • Global Justice Internships: College-age young adults get powerful, summer-long placements with UUA and UUSC partners around the world and receive lots of support for faith development and vocational discernment. We’ll place 20 young-adult interns this summer!

The UUCSJ is a formal collaboration of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC). Its mission is to increase the capacity of UUs to catalyze justice. Building on several years of successful UUA-UUSC partnership, especially in the area of disaster relief, the UUCSJ combines the resources of both organizations to offer a broader and more effective portfolio of service learning and justice education experiences. Sign up for the UUSCJ monthly newsletter and stay up-to-date with all the new opportunities and latest news.
