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. Positions include Youth and Adult Deans (applications due June 15, 2020), Youth and Adult Chaplains (applications due August 20, 2020), and Planning Committee members on the Trajectory of Learning Team, the Logistics & Accessibility Team, the Spiritual Grounding Team, and the Communications & Publicity Team.

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.
