Volunteering With Religious Education

Contact: RE Director, Janet Watts: dre@charlestonuu.org; 723-4617

Teams of volunteers lead classes, with assistance from the Religious Education Director. Each class has a minimum of two adults in the classroom at all times; alternately, one is in the “lead teacher” position, and one in an “assistant” position.  The lead teacher, working with a pre-created lesson plan, facilitates the lesson for the class, having books and craft materials at the ready.  The assistant helps children needing special attention, records attendance and supervises clean-up. Classes range from preschool through middle school and there is also a Youth Group for high school students. Teachers commit to a 3 month rotation.
