Employment / Volunteers / Interns

Volunteering at SIROW

Volunteer opportunities are available at SIROW.  In general, to ensure a useful, full experience, we require a minimum commitment of 64 hours over 4 months (a semester), or 4 hours per week for 16 weeks. Project-specific volunteer opportunities might require a different level of commitment and might have additional requirements. Volunteer opportunities range from office-based research and administration to direct client support services.

Desired characteristics of individuals interested in unique volunteering opportunities:

- Enthusiastic, positive, and reliable.

- If working with youth, willing to undergo a background check.

-Reliable transportation for off campus volunteer opportunities.

If interested in SIROW volunteer opportunities, please contact Josephine Korchmaros at or 621-3330.

Internship Opportunities SIROW/GWS

SIROW &  GWS department encourages internships to develop experiential connections between theory and practice at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Some organizations regularly request women's studies interns and students often develop their own internships either in conjunction with the Women's Activisms and Organizations class or with the aid of the program advisor. In the 8 years since the internship program's inception, students have worked with over 15 organizations--mostly in Tucson, but some out-of-state including political and policy organizations such as Planned Parenthood and the Tucson/Pima County Women's Commission; crisis centers for women & children; health projects; presses, TV stations, and art studios addressing issues of concern to women. If you are an organization in need of interns, or a student interested in doing an internship, please contact the GWS Academic Program Coordinator at 621-5657.

This is a listing of internship projects that students have the option of  earning college credit. They range from 1 unit of credit to 6 and include undergraduate and graduate projects. Some reflect the work of several students. NOTE: You cannot receive "pay" and "credit" for the same project.
