Volunteers for Religious Education



2017 – 2018
Grounded in our motto The Method Is The Message, Children’s Religious Education programing serves its students by exemplifying our UU values in the classroom, on campus, and in the larger community. Volunteering in CRE helps you grow in your own faith, make a difference, and help develop UU identity in our students.  Imagine the impact you can have on the world by volunteering in RE!


ELEMENTS (VPK through 6th grade)


  • Lesson – present the material on various faiths
  • Craft – lead a craft that supports the understanding of the presented material
  • Activity – lead an activity that supports the understanding of the material

Curriculum will be provided.

Elements is divided into three age groups. The group leader moves from room to room with the group and takes attendance, helps with class management, and assists the other teacher. We need one person for each of these groups:

  • Earth Leader (VPK – Kindergarteners)
  • Wind Leader (1st, 2nd and 3rd Graders)
  • Fire Leader (4th, 5th and 6th Graders)


Youth RE consists of grades 7–12.

We are looking for Youth RE Teachers that are enthusiastic about guiding youth through the Understanding Racism program in a fun as well as serious way, while providing a safe and nurturing environment to learn and grow. You may wish to volunteer for just one of our three terms or for the whole year.



Youth Advising is one of the most rewarding roles you can fill as a religious leader. It may be one of the most essential roles you can play in a youth’s life. This is a new and much needed program at 1U, and we are thrilled that the minister sees its deep value and has offered to help get us started. As a new group, a youth advisor will offer support, guidance, and leadership to our youth, then help transition into more of a student-led group by empowering youth leadership. We meet on the first and third Sundays of the month from 12:30 to 2:00pm.


This year will have many extra moving parts. If you are not interested in teaching or working with the kids directly, we still have opportunities for you! Whether you have 15 minutes on a Sunday morning or an hour elsewhere, we need things to be sorted, checked, boxed, inventoried, moved, unpacked, labeled, etc. Please coordinate your availability with Regina directly or via email at DRE@OrlandoUU.org.


Don’t wait! Email Regina at DRE@OrlandoUU.org today to get on the schedule!
