The UU College of Social Justice is excited to invite you to our newest program, Practice the Practice: Experiential Education for Religious Professionals!
Our goal for this program is for participants to leave with a deeper understanding of how to create and run justice-centered experiential education programming, as well as leave with deepened relationships with practitioners that they might call on for support as they put theory into practice.
TIME: Practice the Practice will start with four online sessions, once a month on Monday at 3PM Pacific/ 6PM Eastern for 90 minutes. We expect small groups to meet on their own once a month between sessions to review the topics covered in the full group.
COST: The cost for the online only portion of this program is $350 per participant. This price covers a stipend for the facilitation and program development - it does not go to UUCSJ or UUCSJ staff.
There will be an optional in-person experiential learning journey in New Orleans, LA available to all participants from Tuesday, May 21, 2024 through Friday, May 24, 2024. The cost for this experience will be $1,600, not including transportation to and from the location. This cost will cover facilitator fees, on-the-ground programming, housing, and collectively prepared meals.
While UUCSJ is subsidizing many of the costs of this program, we are not able to offer individual financial aid during this first iteration. We understand that the cost for experiential learning programming can be substantial, which is why we are hoping that a byproduct of this program will be the eventual creation of justice-centered immersion learning in your communities. Please reach out to us if you would like support in thinking through a fundraising program through your local congregations.
