Volunteer Internship Opportunities  

Internship Opportunities

The Women's Center internship opportunities are diverse and flexible, suited for women from all walks of life. Some interns are students, considering careers in social services. Some are women interested in political activism. Others simply want to share their skills with a community of women. Interns have the unique exposure to the inner workings of a non-profit, as well as a chance to be immersed in various social justice topics.

Interns for our Helpline and Drop-In Program:

1. Staff the Helpline, which serves women in crisis, women looking for emotional support, and women searching for resources and referrals. The helpline is available during all open hours.

2. Welcome, talk with, and assist visitors, helping to create a supportive community.

In addition, interns usually take on a project as part of the internship. The following are all possibilities, and if you have an idea for a different focus, it might well be workable.

  • Facilitate a group or workshop: Recent interns have led the following: Creative Writing, Poetry Workshop, Mindful Art, Drop-in Writing Tutorial, Painting and Drawing, and much more. Our groups provide a welcoming space for women to support one another and learn or create together. If you are interested and have an idea of what kind of activity you would like to facilitate, this is a great opportunity. You would also create a flier and help with publicity.
  • Research: Help update and expand our informational resources on a wide range of topics to better serve women in Cambridge, Boston, and New England.
  • Social media/outreach: Join others communicating through our social media platforms and help spread the word about Women’s Center activities and women’s issues.
  • Fundraising: Research grant opportunities, help with record-keeping and donor outreach, help draft and assemble grant applications, assist with an event, and/or help with other fundraising initiatives as needed.

The Women’s Center is open 10am-8pm Monday-Friday, and 10am-3pm Saturdays.
