Instilling in Unitarian Universalist youth and adults a commitment to global engagement and the skills to take action locally to address global issues.

Volunteer at 2021 Seminar

The success of the Seminar depends upon the talent of volunteers who contribute their time, energy, and skills. The Unitarian Universalist Office at the United Nations is now accepting applications for the 2021 Intergenerational Spring Seminar Planning Committee. Open positions for youth and adults include Chaplains and Planning Committee members on the Trajectory of Learning Team, the Logistics & Accessibility Team, the Spiritual Grounding Team, and the Communications & Publicity Team. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which makes large gatherings unsafe, the 2021 Seminar will take place online April 9-11, 2021.

Volunteer Applications

With a deep passion for and commitment to international human rights, youth and adults from all over North America gather annually for our three day seminar to dig deeply into issues with global impact.

The intergenerational seminar is an opportunity to collaborate with others while learning how to be a global activist. Through workshops, peer and expert-led panel discussions, community building activities, and worship services, you will undergo a transformative process of learning, reflection, and growth while exploring some of the most challenging issues facing humanity today.

The 2021 Intergenerational Spring Seminar will focus on the intersection of climate justice, food security, and global food systems. We will delve into ways Unitarian Universalist individuals, congregations, and communities can be all in for climate justice in this unique moment of pandemic and uprising for change.
