The mission of the UU College of Social Justice is to inspire and sustain effective and spiritually grounded activism for justice.
We offer immersion learning journeys, justice training programs, summer internships, and direct volunteer opportunities with partner organizations in the U.S. and abroad. All programs are designed to help people cross boundaries, gain insight, and imagine new ways to make a difference in the world.
Our offerings include options for high school youth, young adults (college age through early 30s), and ministers and seminarians, as well as experiential learning journeys open to all adults. We warmly welcome participants from every faith tradition as well as those who are unaffiliated.
UUCSJ was created in 2012 as a collaboration between the Unitarian Universalist Association and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee. For more information, please visit our FAQ page.
About the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC)
Founded in 1940, UUSC is a nonsectarian organization that works to advance human rights and social justice around the world. By partnering with grassroots organizations, mobilizing members and supporters, and advocating for changes in public policy, UUSC helps people claim their rights — from the right to organize as workers to the right to safety and relief in the wake of disaster.
About the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA)
The UUA is a religious association of congregations established in 1961 via the consolidation of the Universalist Church of America (organized in 1793) and the American Unitarian Association (organized in 1825). With the membership of more than 1,000 independently governed congregations in the United States, Canada, and overseas, the UUA helps UU congregations thrive and promotes the values of Unitarian Universalism.
