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.
Who 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 volunteers do stuff?
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 volunteers work?
Volunteers perform duties both inside of the Gender Equity Center and all around campus. It all depends on what is going on and what volunteers would like to do.
How can a volunteer get involved?
There are so many ways to help out! The first step is to fill out a quick volunteer application.
