Are you a UVA student looking to get involved with the Women's Center?

We offer a Volunteer Corps for UVA students interested in promoting equity and well-being on Grounds. Members of our Volunteer Corps commit to:

  • 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 all of the resources that the Women’s Center offers. 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 Volunteer Corps Coordinator, Leah Carroll, for more information.

Volunteer support for summer projects is often needed, too. If you are a UVA student spending the summer in Charlottesville and would like to help, please contact the coordinator about that via email as well.

Looking for ways to help as a UVA alum, faculty or staff member, or friend in the Charlottesville community?

Serving as an outreach ambassador is a great way for UVA alumni, faculty and staff members, and friends in the Charlottesville community to support our work. Sharing information about the resources and opportunities we offer on a regular basis is easy and immensely helpful to the center and the many other offices with which we frequently collaborate. Subscribe to our email communications and/or follow us on your preferred social media channels and help members of the UVA community in your networks learn about how we can all work together toward a just and equitable place to work and learn at UVA.

The Women's Center's Free Legal Clinic is always looking for Charlottesville-area attorneys interested in sharing their time and knowledge with local people in need of information about common legal issues. The time commitment is flexible and attorneys can make a difference through the clinic by volunteering just a few evenings a year. Contact us at 434-982-2250 or [email protected] for more information.
