Benefits of Working a Table
Women's Studies Students
You could be the reason a student chooses to become a minor in Women's Studies. As a volunteer, you will help extend the reach of our office. Become a volunteer and you will have the opportunity to gain experience of putting into practice that which you have learned as a student. Volunteers are needed to assist with tabling at various campus and community events (see list below for details).
What do I have to do?
Tabling at an event usually involves arriving ahead of time/staying late to help set up/take down promotional items for the table. You will work along side other students and staff from our program to help answer questions of potential students about campus life as well as Women's Studies general news, classes, and events.

Volunteering is good for your mind and body
- Volunteering provides many benefits to both mental and physical health. Volunteering increases self-confidence. Volunteering can provide a healthy boost to your self-confidence, self-esteem, and life satisfaction. You are doing good for others and the community, which provides a natural sense of accomplishment. Your role as a volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity. And the better you feel about yourself, the more likely you are to have a positive view of your life and future goals. .
Volunteering can provide career experience
- Volunteering offers you the chance to try out a new career without making a long-term commitment. It is also a great way to gain experience in a new field. In some fields, you can volunteer directly at an organization that does the kind of work you’re interested in. For example, if you’re interested in nursing, you could volunteer at a hospital or a nursing home. Your volunteer work might also expose you to professional organizations or internships that could be of benefit to your career. - www.helpguide.org
