Beginning in 2008, our congregation embarked upon a project for education equity entitled the “Irvington Initiative.” Called by the insisting of our then minister, Rev. Vanessa Southern, and the vision of the Social Justice ministry at our congregation, we started initiatives to help offer much-needed assistance to students in Irvington. This was faithful work grounded in Unitarian Universalism. One of the highlights of this initiative that continues to this day is the tutoring program at Chancellor Avenue School. Each Saturday during the fall and spring semesters, volunteers from our community show up to tutor students at Chancellor Ave. from 9:30 until 11:30 am. We hope you might consider volunteering for this program and connecting with our Chancellor Ave School liaison, Jessica Park who can be reached at email@example.com. We will also have a special day, at the request of the librarian at Chancellor Ave., to make some repairs in the library as well as creating some welcoming decorations for the students. Join us on March 11 from 9:30-11:30 am. to help with a library clean-up day. Email Jessica if you can join us! As we approach ten years of this robust and vital initiative for education equity in Irvington, you are invited to join us on March 26 for a service focused in education equity and the history of educational pioneers in both our Unitarian and Universalist ancestors. Where are we called at this moment to help build a future for our children? — Our RE Coordinator loves your feedback, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org The featured picture shows UCS volunteers helping at the ChancellorAve Holiday Bazaar.
