Volunteer Placements

 Hurricane Relief

The UUCSJ team is keeping a close eye on updates regarding the communities affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, particularly those who are most vulnerable. In partnership with UUSC grassroots partners in Texas and Florida, UUCSJ is exploring where and how volunteers can be most useful once the worst flooding has receded and communities are safe. 

Sign up to join the volunteer list if you’re available to travel to Texas or Florida to support relief efforts. More detailed information will be shared as it become available in the coming months. 

The Volunteer Placements program is designed to be a powerful opportunity for individuals who are willing to lend their skills and/or expertise to leave a meaningful impact with one of our partner organizations, while also strengthening their own personal faith through justice work.

Past volunteer roles include:

Spanish translator
Medical professional
Legal aid
Videographer/ Photographer
Agriculture specialist

UUCSJ is always recruiting a team of passionate volunteers to be among the first to know when new volunteer opportunities arise throughout the year.
