The Work Study program under the Jane Kopas Women's Center is offered to students who qualify for federal work study aid and are looking to obtain skills they can apply in a future career. Work Study students are the backbone of the JKWC- students have the opportunity to implement feminist theory into practice through educational programs.
Work Study students should expect to work between 10 and 15 hours a week, including some nights and weekends. Work Study positions include Work Study Coordinator, Volunteer Coordinator, Publicity Coordinator, Leadership Development Coordinator, Community Engagement Coordinator, Body Integrity Coordinator, and Historian/Assessment Coordinator. Upperclass students should inquire in March or early April about work study positions for the following academic year. First year students should inquire during the first few weeks of the fall semester about open positions.
Volunteers provide necessary insight and enthusiasm at the JKWC! Each semester, the JKWC identifies three tracks for volunteer work. Student volunteers select a track at the bi-annual Volunteer Training. Then, they work together to research and plan events that surround the topics of interest. Please contact the Director, Justine Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Volunteers are not limited to the three tracks, if you are interested in becoming involved with the JKWC through a different route, please let us know!
