Our Volunteer Corps is committed to the following:
- Connecting UVA students with resources available at the Women’s Center to help students become aware of gender equity issues both on Grounds and in the global community.
- Broadening Women’s Center outreach and its message through wider student body inclusivity.
Corps members actively participate in and promote Women’s Center events–such as Survivor Support Network Training, Reflections, the Zintl Award, National Girls and Women in Sports Day, etc. In order to amplify our reach, Corps members are asked to follow our social media channels and actively engage with our posts. Corps members also selflessly commit to service work at the Center by partnering with interns and staff to complete annual projects. Lastly, Corps members serve as advocates for change within the University community.
There is a training session for volunteers soon after the start of each academic year. Please reach out to our current volunteer coordinator, Martha O'Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
Volunteer support for summer projects is often needed, too. If you will be in Charlottesville this summer and would like to help, please contact the coordinator about that via email as well.
