Through readings, self-reflection and the sharing of relevant experiences, we will explore the meaning of the volunteer work that we do as it relates to our personal life journeys. It will be expected that each participant will engage in an ongoing volunteer project that provides some kind of service to the disadvantaged.

Wtih Andy Byford, President, NYC Transit Authority

Leaving his position as CEO of the Toronto Transit Commission in December of 2017, Andy Byford took on the job as head of the New York City Transit. Byford was practically born into the job. His father and grandfather worked for the London Transport, and he was a station foreman in the London Underground before running the mass transit in Australia and then Canada. And now he’s taken on the largest public-transit system in North America, with some 8 million passengers a day. He’s vowed to visit all 472 of New York’s subway stations and to ride every bus route — and to make major changes.

with Leader Dr. Joseph Chuman.

This is a monthly discussion group focusing on contemporary issuese and occasionally classical writings relating Ethical Culture and Humanism. We will primarily make use of articles from journals of opinion and book chapters when relevant. Rather than taking a merely journalistic approach, the discussions will aim to illuminate the philosophical concepts and values which underlie the issues being discussed.
