Internships are offered to students seeking course credit for their work with the Jane Kopas Women's Center.  The goals of the internship program include helping students engage in feminist praxis by applying knowledge learned in courses to the work we do, development of skills and knowledge related to our mission and goals, and preparing students for their future career through administrative tasks and event and program planning.

Interns tend to work about 10 hours per week.  They serve as full members of the staff, attending staff meetings, leading at least one project, and participating in the planning and implementing of other events and programs offered by the Jane Kopas Women's Center.

We are now accepting applications for Spring 2021.  Please complete the Student Staff Application (linked above) and email it to jkwc@scranton.edu no later than 12pm on November 13th if interested for best consideration.  Interviews will be scheduled upon receipt of your application.

Work Study:

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 about 10 hours a week on average, including some nights and weekends for special events. Work Study staff are charged with planning and implementing projects and events, maintaining a welcoming office space, completing general office tasks, engaging in research about events and programs to further our mission, focusing on their own development through research and reading, and serving as ambassadors of the Cross Cultural Centers in all that they do. 

Please note: JKWC staff meetings occur on Monday afternoons.  Please indicate your availability on these afternoons in your application.
