Connect Through Service
Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer.
At Unity of Houston, reaching out into the community is a proactive way in which we live the principles we believe – that we all spiritually connected, one to another. In this belief, when the consciousness of one is raised that in turn raises the consciousness of us all. We connect to our Oneness by working with others to help those in need.
Unity of Houston is increasing its circle of influence by playing an even bigger role in our community!
Unity congregants have a wealth of talent, passion, and skills that can positively impact our community through outreach. Our goal is to engage an even greater collective consciousness that can make a difference in our community.Through your participation in the survey developed by the Unity in the Community Leadership Team, programs for greater involvement in the Houston community outreach have been initiated.
The survey responses show that the greatest areas of your interests are:
1) Child Advocacy
The survey results show a great interest in learning more about these areas and about the participants engaging in volunteer opportunities with organizations that serve these needs in our community. Email Rev. Mindy Lawrence Curtiss at email@example.com for more info.
Volunteer at Pilgrim Academy!
The 2021-2022 school year will soon begin and Unity in the Community is excited to resume its volunteer activities at Pilgrim Academy. As a Unity volunteer, you have a wonderful opportunity to tutor a student in reading, chaperone a class on a field trip, assist young children during lunch in the cafeteria, serve as history project judge, or participate at multiple fun learning activities including family night, science/math night, book fair, field day, and more. To do so, all prospective volunteers must annually register with HISD’s Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) program. Each applicant will complete a brief on-line orientation. In addition, you will need to agree to a background check for VIPS approval. That’s it! Its simple, its easy, and we promise you will have a rewarding experience as a Unity volunteer at Pilgrim Academy.
