Volunteers at the Gender Equity Center
Our volunteers are very important to us. As a volunteer, your help contributes to our work! Whether you are tabling with us for an event, helping us plan projects, or organize the things we need for our programs, we value and appreciate everything you do. If you would like to become part of our team as a volunteer, please fill out our volunteer application form online.
Why should I volunteer?
Volunteering at the Gender Equity Center is about far more than gaining a few hours of service. At the Gender Equity Center, you can deepen your understanding of how the world works. You will have opportunities to see how small actions can affect you and your community. Volunteering is a way to help further the Gender Equity Center goals of empowering students, promoting active citizenship, and encouraging dialogue about issues relating to gender. It’s a way to embody the skills necessary to inspire the community toward justice. Plus, at the end of each semester, students are recognized for their services at an awards ceremony. (Do we still do this?) – nope, delete it
How do I know if I can volunteer?
Any student is eligible for volunteering at the Gender Equity Center. All you need to do is fill out and submit a volunteer application.
When do I volunteer?
Volunteers are students first, so volunteering will not be at the expense of academic performance. Volunteers will work on their own time. This could range from 2 hours a month to 20 hours a month, but should generally not exceed more than 5 hours per week. All volunteers will attend coordination meetings as needed to go over upcoming events and plans. There are opportunities for people to volunteer a few hours for a single event, as well as opportunities for someone to play a larger part in the Gender Equity Center by working on continuous projects throughout the semester.
Where do I volunteer?
Volunteers perform duties both inside of the Gender Equity Center and all around campus, depending on what is going on and what they would like to do.
How can I get involved?
There are so many ways to help out! The first step is to fill out a quick volunteer application.
