Employment and Volunteer Opportunities


The programs and services offered by UW Women’s Center would not be possible without the commitment and hard work of the many UW students who work here! Each year, about 10 student assistants keep our daily operations running smoothly and support the work of our various programs. In addition, work study student employees provide assistance with marketing, computer support and web-design, development and grant writing, and direct assistance to the director.

Please click the position titles below to read the job descriptions. Many of these positions are currently open – please contact Amy Piedalue with any inquires ( or 206-616-5216). On average, our student staff members work approximately 10-15 hours per week and pay varies by position and experience. In many cases, prior experience is not required.

All of these positions are Work Study only, meaning that a student must be eligible for Work Study through their Financial Aid award in order to apply. Due to limited funding resources, the Women’s Center is not able to offer these positions to non-Work Study students. To verify your Work Study eligibility, please contact the Work Study office directly, at 206-685-1985, visit their websiteor check your Financial Aid Award through MyUW
