Make a Difference by Volunteering
Each volunteer or intern helps further, health, human rights, and equity in Mexico. These volunteer contributions augment and leverage the work of staff, while providing invaluable work experience and training to individuals and students.
“I was so inspired and enriched by working as a volunteer at Centro Mujeres. I am a better person, and more knowledgeable about social justice and women’s rights because of this rewarding volunteer experience. This is a courageous and bold organization.” ~ Mary Anne Harmer, Portland, Oregon, February, 2015
My name is Patricia and I have been involved with Centro Mujeres as a volunteer for the last five years. I am a long time feminist and have been active in the development of the individual donor network. I can also be seen helping out as the “handywoman” changing locks, plastering, painting, and repairing to keep the Center fresh and clean!
I’m Marilyn. I got involved with Centro Mujeres in 1995, and continue volunteering, supporting special events and promoting women’s rights in B.C.S.
Hey, Gurnee here. I have been a supporter of Centro Mujeres for the last five years. I enjoy helping out at the massive events held by Jóvenes en Acción. I help with transportation, logistics, or wherever I can, when help is needed. This is a powerful program and I am proud to be a small part of it.
I am Matt and I lend a hand as Centro Mujeres’ computer specialist and web page advisor. I volunteer mostly from Colorado via new technologies but also when I am in La Paz. I recognize Centro Mujeres as an important resource in the community and am proud to be part of the team.
Internships are available for upper-level undergraduate students, recent graduates and graduate/professionals with relevant experience and interests that align with the mission of the organization. Interns are required to commit a minimum of 15 hours a week for at least 12 weeks. This focused commitment typically includes a broad range of duties that intersect intern interests and institutional needs.
Limited funding and resources makes it difficult for Centro Mujeres to provide stipends for interns, however we will assist interns in finding affordable housing in La Paz. Many students are able to receive funding through their school’s financial aid office.
Centro Mujeres believes that student internships are of value to both the organization and the individual — and is based on a relationship of respect and mutual benefit. If you are interested, in applying for an internship please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of current program areas receiving interns and application guidelines.
