Volunteer Teaching Associates:

We offer a Teaching Associates Program to harness the creative energy and passions of the youth and adults in the congregation. There have always been creative, inspired volunteer teachers at UUCE. SpiritJam will offer an opportunity for these inspired teachers to enrich the program, not require them to run it. They won’t have to volunteer each Sunday or be in charge of classroom management. We have paid lead teachers who will know the children and provide consistency.
