Internships & Field Study Placements

Are you interested in a field study or internship at the Women's Center? Do you want to work with the Women’s Center to educate our campus community about relationship violence and healthy relationships?

The Women's Center hosts internships designed to meet the hours and work requirements of a 3 credit hour undergraduate internship. Most folks who complete our internships for credit are in Human Development, Sociology, Women and Gender Studies, Communication, or related fields. We have had folks complete for credit through other departments, including Psychology, Neuroscience, Leadership and Social Change, and more. We also do accept applications from folks not seeking credit, however, we ask that you plan to participate as if you were pursuing 3 credit hours in terms of time commitment, workload, etc. for the semester. 

We are recruiting for 1-3 positions for Fall 2019.  Interns help with outreach, event planning, social media, and advertising related to gender-based violence prevention.  In the Fall, our educational focus is on the Red Flag Campaign and topics of healthy and unhealhty relationships.  Learn more.

Volunteer Opportunities 

The Women’s Center is dedicated to programming that educates the campus community about women's and gender issues. Volunteers can assist with the planning, coordination, and implementation of many of our programs and events.  During the fall of 2018, we currently have no additional volunteer openings.  You can check back in spring 2019 for opportunities.  If you are seeking volunteer opportunities for the fall, you may wish to check with the Women's Resource Center of the New River Valley.
