Intern at the WCC

WCC Intern Program


The WCC Intern Program is designed to allow for a fun and flexible opportunity for Stanford students to engage with the Stanford Women’s Community Center. Interns will shadow a staff member in one of our many program areas. While each intern will shadow a particular program, there is a high degree of flexibility in WCC programming, allowing interns to pursue their own areas of interest throughout their time at the WCC. Interns are primarily responsible for helping their staff mentor with their WCC work, but will  also be asked to work on an independent Intern Project during Winter or Spring Quarter, with guidance from the Intern Coordinator and the staff mentor.  In addition, interns should expect to find and contribute to a vibrant community of co-interns and staff members through social events and teamwork on projects.

We invite everyone with interest to apply, no matter where you are in your exploration and involvement in gender equity issues! We welcome all students to apply, regardless of gender, class year, identity, or experience. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the WCC, learn about Stanford, explore ideas around feminism and social justice, and develop friendships with a cohort of interns and staff members at the WCC.
