Claire Buckholz

YWLP offers young women a variety of ways to be involved with mentoring during their UVA years – and Claire Buckholz has served in ALL of them. Most students in YWLP serve as Big Sisters who mentor local middle school girls. Some of them return for another year in the program as mentoring group facilitators for a group of Big and Little Sisters. Others shift to supporting the program on the YWLP intern team working closely with our staff.

When the safety and well-being of one member of our community is threatened, our entire community is harmed. Right now, we know, harms are coming from multiple directions, with competing demands for our attention. In addition to the immediate concerns of coronavirus and the sweeping protests against systemic racism, policy changes are coming to the ways that sexual misconduct complaints are handled.

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!
