This opportunity is offered in the spirit of building community, broadening circles, and fostering intergenerational relations. It will provide youth who are ERUUF members a chance to share their love of UUism with the younger generation. This experience is truly emblematic of UU values: covenantal relationships rooted in community and mutual respect. Unlike other internships that offer a chance to learn work skills, this internship offers youth a chance to practice bringing their UU values into a work environment. Priority will be given to applicants who have completed Coming of Age at ERUUF or another UU congregation.

With this internship you will:

  • Build leadership skills
  • Deepen knowledge of UU principles and how they can impact life and community
  • Build relationships with other adults at ERUUF (parents and teachers)
  • Create and deepen relationships with UU children
  • Add valuable experience and skills to your resume
