UUJMNC Needs You!!!
Have some time? Have some passion? Have a skill to share? Want to connect with other Unitarian Universalists while also working for justice?
UUJMNC wants (and needs) YOU!!!
The work of UUJMNC can’t be done by only one person, by UUJMN’s president, director, or board, or by a few dedicated volunteers. Instead, our work and our success depends on many hard-working, dedicated volunteers like you!
Some volunteer opportunities take only an hour or two each week or a few hours every month or so. Some require more time and involve ongoing tasks or special skills, training, or experience. But all of them offer the opportunity to help shape UUJMNC and to help UUJMNC “give life the shape of justice.”
Check out the volunteer opportunities below and stay tuned via UUJMNC’s website, newsletter, and Facebook page for other volunteer opportunities.
If you’re interested in volunteering your time and skills to help UUJMNC “give life the shape of justice,” please complete UUJMNC’s on-line Skills Survey and Volunteer Sign Up Form or email UUJMNC if you have questions, need more information, or want to volunteer in some other capacity (please include your name, congregational affiliation, contact information, the volunteer position or role you’re interested in, why you’d like to volunteer for that position, and any experience or skills relevant to the position).
UUJMNC’s current volunteer opportunities include:
- Webmaster. Manage, maintain, and update UUJMNC’s website at least twice weekly, two hours per week. Requires experience and training in website development and familiarity with WordPress and the UUA WordPress theme.
