9/11 Unity Walk brings together people of all ages, backgrounds and faiths to learn to respect each other through a framework of experiential education, compassionate leadership and intentional service. Unity Walk seeks to create a world where we are united rather than divided by our many faiths.
JOIN THE STEERING COMMITTEE!
The Steering Committee is made up of volunteers of all different faiths who meet monthly to help plan the walk, provide outreach/publicity for the walk and guile programming (interfaith youth service, education outreach, young leaders networking etc).

Volunteer Descriptions (Day of Walk)
- Safety Coordinator:
These volunteers will help participants to cross the streets along the route of the walk. There are multiple stops along the walk that call to cross Massachusetts Ave. Since every small street does not have a cross walk and light, these volunteers will escort participants across the street to ensure a safe arrival. Total =30
- Host Congregation Volunteers:
Unity Walk needs 2 volunteers at each Host Congregation to ensure the program runs smoothly. Since each program is slated for 45 minutes, these volunteers will need to help the congregations start and end their programs at the appropriate time. They will also be there to answer questions any of the participants may have. Total=22
- Registration Volunteers:
Unity Walk will need 5 volunteers to help with registration and signing in at the Opening Ceremony. These volunteers will assist our database coordinator in making sure those who register fill out the appropriate sign-up sheets. Total=10
- Transportation Volunteers:
These volunteers will serve as support for the hired drives used for transportation at the Unity Walk. One (1) volunteer will be in each vehicle, updating the four (4) volunteers on the ground with locations and times of the vehicle. Total =5
Unity Walk seeks to create a world where we are united, rather than divided, by our many faiths and creeds. Each September, 9/11 Unity Walk participants , in the spirit of mutual respect and unity, walk shoulder to shoulder; experience hospitality; and engage in partnership[s] with people of different backgrounds and creeds.
