The Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice (UUCSJ) is giving individuals the chance to partake in a service trip to one of seven locations across the globe. UUCSJ, a formal collaboration of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC), seeks to increase the capacity of Unitarian Universalists to catalyze justice worldwide. By participating in a trip, you can join the movement to assist those who are oppressed around the world while developing the skills needed to continue to serve in the future.
Through WizeHive’s grant software, you can apply to any of the service learning trips offered by UUCSJ. This year, UCCSJ will be sending volunteers to New Orleans, Tuscon, Haiti, Tanzania, India, Nicaragua and Guatemala.
The trip to New Orleans will give you the chance to live, work and learn with people dedicated to a holistic and equitable recovery for the city. This year, UUSC is teaming up with the Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal to offer you an opportunity to partake in a life-changing week.
If you apply for the UUSC-UUA Supporter Journey to Tanzania and Burundi, you will get the chance to witness vital on-the-ground human-rights work and meet African Unitarians.
This is the first year in which UUCSJ is offering a trip to India. The service-learning trip will give you the opportunity to explore Vidhayak Sansad’s ongoing struggle for justice for impoverished people in the region surrounding Mumbai.
We encourage you to apply for one of the trips offered and join the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice’s quest to transform lives and bring justice to the world.
