Volunteer Teachers, Assistants and Child Care Givers 

Becoming a Unity teacher of children is a sure way to accelerate your own spiritual growth and understanding. We always have room for more who wish to participate in our Sunday morning program. Because we like having a healthy and safe adult/child ratio, we require a minimum of two teachers in a class. Volunteers are asked to be willing to volunteer twice a month for a minimum of six months. That way volunteers have ample time to get to know the children and the children have ample time to become comfortable with each volunteer.
