Volunteer Opportunities

Roxbury Youth Programs Tutors
RYP is an afterschool and school vacation program that serves high school students. RYP tutors offers opportunities for youth to improve their academic, interpersonal and leadership skills while empowering them to be leaders in their families, schools, and communities.

Believe in Success
Believe in Success is a workforce development and healing program for adult survivors of domestic violence. Volunteers provide support in areas like, but not limited to, crafting cover letters and resumes; acting as mock interviewers (phone/in-person); serving as career panelist; being a personal shopper; designing and delivering workshops, providing support or acting as a coach for participants.

Fair Foods
Fair Foods is a non-profit food rescue organization dedicated to providing surplus produce at low or no cost to those in need. We serve as a site for this work on Saturday mornings from 10:30 am – 2 pm. We are always in need of individuals or groups to help sort and distribute the food, help with deliveries, and much more. For more background click here.

Events Help
Throughout the year, the UU Urban Ministry hosts events such as Community Suppers (normally on the 2nd Tuesday of each month), lecture series, community engagement events, and events and celebrations for our program participants. Helping hands are needed for set-up, clean-up, managing activities, and serving meals and refreshments. Donations for beverages and pastries are welcome.

Please contact Marvin Venay, Director of Congregational and Volunteer Engagement, at engagement @ uuum.org for more information about any volunteer activity or to get involved.
