Women’s Center Internships
The Women’s Center offers three undergraduate (unpaid) internships: Vandy Sex Ed, Women’s Center Ambassadores, and the Body Project. Interns are chosen in September for participation during the academic year. Details for each internship are listed below.
The Bold Space
The Bold Space is a feminist collective dedicated to challenging deficits in confidence that students experience and to increasing students’ abilities to advocate—individually and collectively—about issues that are important to them and their communities. Interns will promote self-advocacy and institutional advocacy across campus through workshops that emphasize overcoming imposter syndrome and building confidence, while also breaking down institutional barriers. They will act as change-agents by speaking out against and addressing inequalities they notice within our communities.

Vandy Sex Ed
The Vandy Sex Ed internship arms undergraduate peer educators with the knowledge and tools necessary to help both themselves and their peers make healthy and informed decisions about sex and sexuality. Vandy Sex Ed interns are trained in holistic sex and sexuality education at the beginning of each academic year. Throughout the year, interns facilitate workshops on a range of topics related to sexuality, sexual health, and healthy relationships. Interns develop programming for the annual Sex Ed and Healthy Relationships Week series each spring.

Women’s Center Ambassadores
The Women’s Center Ambassadores (WCA) internship addresses feminism and gender equity at large. In addition to developing programs of their own, WCA interns help to promote and staff the Women’s Center’s larger events. WCA interns are responsible for the monthly Kitchen Table Series as well as various by-request Feminism 101 programs. WCA interns sometimes collaborate with student groups and departments on events that intersect with feminism.
