Women's Center Volunteer Intern Program: Building Community While Advancing Social and Gender Justice
Murray, Margaret A.; Vlasnik, Amber L.
NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, v8 n2 p123-124 2015
This program description explores the purpose, structure, activities, and outcomes of the volunteer intern program at the Wright State University Women's Center. Designed to create meaningful, hands-on learning experiences for students and to advance the center's mission, the volunteer intern program builds community while advancing social and gender justice. Interns report many positive outcomes, including stronger understandings of themselves and others, a greater sense of belonging and feminist community on campus, and the intention to remain involved in work for social and gender justice after graduation.
