The WRC's student workers and volunteers are a diverse group of women and men who are committed to educating themselves and their peers about issues like gender equity, identity, equality, social privilege and oppression.
Through training and hands on experience, student workers learn how oppression and privilege are linked to gender violence and sexual assault. They work with WRC staff members to create and implement educational programs, facilitate powerful discussion, and become leaders in the SMC community. Here are the various opportunities to get involved this semester:
Gender Justice Leadership Facilitators The GJL facilitators take the lead on the planning and execution of 3-5 programs, ranging from the luncheon series to World AIDS Day to Women's History Month programming, throughout the academic year. The facilitators will have 4 office hours per week--ideal separated into two 2-hour shifts and will collaborate with student workers, volunteers and staff to make their programs a success. There are generally two positions open per year.
Student Worker (Federal Work Study Position) Student workers assist with program and event planning, marketing, managing social media, tabling, greeting visitors, and numerous other areas. There is currently 1 open Student Worker position at the WRC and we are looking for a student who can work the opening shift (8:30AM to 10:30AM) Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday (or at least 3 of these days) for Fall Semester. This student must have Federal Work Study.
Volunteer The WRC has ample volunteer opportunities. We encourage volunteers to reflect on how their academic coursework and personal passions and areas of interest tie in with the programs and goals of the Women's Resource Center. The WRC staff is intentional about aligning students with work and projects that will be mutually beneficial.
