Do you need volunteer hours? Have you ever wanted to tell others about your experience as a Women's Studies minor? Do you need access to tone your communication skills and invest in leadership development? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, then the Women’s Studies Program needs your help.
Volunteers are needed to assist with a variety of activities throughout the year. Specific tasks, as well as miscellaneous duties, are offered to provide you an experience of a behind the scenes look at our program and the campus community. These opportunities are highly beneficial to those students in need of building their resume.
We will work with you, even if you can only provide us an hour of your day. Depending on the event, you do not have to commit to the whole time frame and there is not a limit to the amount of time you spend with us.

Benefits of volunteering
- Volunteering connects you to others - One of the better-known benefits of volunteering
is the impact on the community. Unpaid volunteers are often the glue that holds a
community together. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make
it a better place. However, volunteering is a two-way street, and it can benefit you
and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a
volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.

Volunteering can advance your career
- If you’re considering a new career, volunteering can help you get experience in your area of interest and meet people in the field. Even if you’re not planning on changing careers, volunteering gives you the opportunity to practice important skills used in the workplace, such as teamwork, communication, problem solving, project planning, task management, and organization. You might feel more comfortable stretching your wings at work once you’ve honed these skills in a volunteer position first.
