RE/Youth Program Volunteers Needed!

We need you! North Parish runs cooperative programs to fulfill our mission of UU faith development for children and youth.  Parents and non-parents are part of this ministry in a variety of roles.  Please sign up to be part of our Sunday Team of volunteers for Elementary and Youth programs.

Volunteers are also needed for a variety of roles outside Sunday morning classroom, including planning roles on the Youth Adult Team or Elementary RE Team, and as companions to youth as COA mentors or coordinators. For those roles, please email Director of Faith Formation Kerry Anne Kilkelly at

At North Parish, you will find vibrant and multi-faceted programs and community which nurture children from babies and toddlers through 12th Grade. Our programs and our member volunteer leaders help foster and encourage our young ones to embrace life fully, with all of its wonder and mystery as well as its challenges, sorrows and ambiguities by:

  • Creating caring, safe, and fun spaces where each child is known, heard and can fully participate in their own expressive way
  • Drawing from the sources and principles of our Unitarian Universalist tradition and using art, music, stories, activities and movement for all learning ages and abilities to help create a life “spiritual toolkit”
  • Empowering our children and youth to seek truth, stand on the side of love with moral values and to carry their UU faith into the world through the way they live their daily lives

Childrens projects in Chapel

Our goal is to provide a community of open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands; create a space for your children to make friends of all ages and create lasting friendships; help children learn and care about others through multi-generational worship and social action community building projects.
