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:
The SCAR Team Lead will work with the Coordinator of Sexual Assault Awareness and Outreach to schedule classroom and residence hall presentations and run bi-weekly practices with SCAR team members. Additionally, they will take an active role in the planning and execution of programs such as Catalina Torres Night to Remember and Take Back the Night. The team leads will have 4 office hours per week. In order to qualify for this position, students must be current members of the SCAR Team.
To get involved as a general SCAR Team member, you must take the Jan Term 2015 quarter credit class Peer Educator Training: Students Ending Sexual Violence at SMC. Contact Gillian at x4193 for more info.
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.
