Partners in Service
The United Church of Christ’s Partners in Service program helps increase the service capacity of the partner host organizations and provides leadership development and the opportunity for volunteers to use gifts and skills. Volunteers serve part or full-time for periods of 1 – 12 months with a host and participate in networking activities with other Partners in Service volunteers. Open for adults of all ages.
In 2021-2022, Authorized Ministers may apply for Partners in Service for externships in humanitarian and social justice settings to grow their skills during these unprecedented times. Email Danielle Hickman at Hickmand@ucc.org to inquire further.
