Community Builders is a new volunteer initiative at the Women’s Resource and Action Center. Community Builders will go through the WRAC volunteer training along with WRACtivists and LEAP volunteers. Following completion of training, Community Builders will meet weekly to plan and execute programming in WRAC and/or in collaboration with other campus and community organizations.
The kinds of programs and events that volunteers may plan and implement are unlimited and based on the intersection of the interests and skills of the Community Builders and the interests of the community in general. Some examples of one-time events might include a film screening, a discussion, or a workshop; recurring events could include crafting groups, letter-writing parties, study groups, or coffeehouses with music and readings. Volunteers will be expected to attend scheduled meetings, help plan and implement at least one event each semester, and support other Community Builders in their events.
Community Builders will need to the ability to sometimes work independently and reliably follow through on commitments. Volunteers’ schedules and availability will factor into the weekly meeting time of the group to the degree that it is possible (in other words, we will work to find a time that works for the most people as possible).
Community Builders is an academic-year-long program which holds trainings each semester.
Community Builders meets weekly on Thursdays from 5:30-7:00pm at WRAC.
Participants must complete mandatory training session.
