SARVA

Interns

Interested in interning with SARVA?

Applications for 2018-2019 are currently open. 

 

If you’re interested in getting involved, please fill out our freelance volunteer application and get in touch with the Assistant Director at asuwadsa@uw.edu

 


If you’re interested in getting involved with SARVA and contributing directly to our efforts to counter power-based violence on campus, then check out our intern positions!

Interning with SARVA is a year-long commitment that may require anywhere from 2 – 6 hours of work per week depending on the position, time of the year, and intern availability. Please note that while this internship is unpaid, it will allow you to gain a variety of experiences and skills as well as the opportunity to become deeply involved with the anti-violence efforts on campus (and it’s a great resume builder!).

In addition to the specific duties allocated to each position (descriptions below), interns will be asked to help with preparing for and running SARVA events (particularly during SARVA month in April). Most interns will also lead a small group of volunteers, allowing them to engage with other students on campus and to gain leadership and managerial skills.

 

SARVA is offering three intern opportunities for the 2018-2019 school year. Each will be a 9 month (1 full school year) commitment, and will be a minimum 5 hour per week time commitment. Please read each description carefully and select ONE option when asked.
