About the course
Whether you are self-directing or joining the optional monthly Zoom sessions, explore your unique talents and hone skills needed to develop or improve feasible service projects and to live a purposeful, sustainable, and service-inspired life. We invite you to join us in the School of Service, directed by higher values and real-world experience.
Although this course has its home at UUI, we lift up the importance of practicing what we have nominated as a universal language when endeavoring to live a life of loving service for all humankind.
The Zoom sessions will be practice ground for universal language.
Service Leader Guidance
During the monthly gatherings of the hybrid course, this program of UUI’s School of Service will provide the opportunity for students to interact with experts in various areas of service. Several supportive Service Leaders will join each session, guiding the conversation and fielding your questions.
The course participants are invited to participate in an out-of-class assignment.
Either bringing a service project with you or initiating a new one, students will integrate the lessons from the course material and from the monthly gatherings provided by the Service Leaders and their peers.
During the course, you are encouraged to engage in discussion boards with your peers and Service Leaders.
After the course, students will have the choice to become members of the newly established social transformation community network, S.P.I.R.I.T., to continue to empower and partner with each other in the outcomes of the course.
