Volunteers in Programming (VIP) is a new volunteer initiative at the Women’s Resource and Action Center. VIPs will go through the WRAC volunteer training along with WRACtivists, LEAP volunteers, and MAC volunteers. Following completion of training, VIPs 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 VIPs 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 VIPs in their events. VIPs 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).
VIPs are an academic-year-long program which holds trainings each semester.
Participants must attend mandatory training session.
