With 9 different teams, there are lots of ways for you to get involved with the Women's Center next year. Our internship program gives you the chance to combine classroom study with the practical experience of working with staff members in a particular area of advocacy. Former interns give many reasons why they chose our internship program - and why they're glad they did!
