Application for GROW Fellowship 2021

Thank you for your interest in joining us for our GROW Fellowship, a collaboration between the UU College of Social Justice and the UUA's Thrive Program for Young Adults of Color. Building on past sessions of GROW (Grounded and Resilient Organizer Workshops) and amidst the challenges of the current pandemic, we continue to adapt to a new format, in which we will gather weekly online from the new moon in March (mid-month) through August 2021.

This offering is designed to equip 20 UU young adults of color and white UU young adults (ages 18-35) with the frameworks, spiritual grounding, and community to engage in justice work within and beyond our Unitarian Universalist faith. 

In a few different touch points throughout the months, we’ll explore topics such as transformative approaches to governance, time, conflict, imagination and economy/ecology. The fellows will come together to learn community organizing skills from bold, grounded leaders, and to craft strategic visions for our ongoing justice work. A stipend will be available to all who are accepted into the program and who commit to a shared level of participation, averaging attendance at 75% of our group gatherings. 

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until February 15th. We will follow up with all applicants by February 28th and begin our weekly justice workouts on Monday, March 15th, continuing to meet Mondays at 8pm EST for the duration of the program. Please email info@uucsj.org if you have any questions.





















All UUCSJ programs are open to people of any religious affiliation or no affiliation. Unitarian Universalism is a very inclusive faith. Our programs are designed to reflect the values and commitments of the UU faith while welcoming those of other faiths or lack thereof.
