Join the Women’s Center Scouts!

If you’re already coming to our events, why not take this relationship up to the next level!? Any UMBC community can join the Scouts by completing this semester challenge:

  • Join our myUMBC page and follow us on one of our social media pages
  • Attend 1 dicussion-based event
  • Attend 1 Awareness Month event in October hosted by the Women’s Center (a Relationship Violence Awareness Month or LGBTQ History Month event)
  • Spend time in our lounge (make a friend, study, join in a lively conversation!) – earn your stamp by visiting us twice in one week.

Scouts completing the challenge will receive a Women’s Center t-shirt. Pick up your Fall 2019 stamp card at the Women’s Center.

Volunteer

The Women’s Center will need support from volunteers to help with events, outreach, and staffing the Center from time-to-time. We conduct volunteer training sessions throughout the semester or for specific large events requiring volunteer support (such as Take Back the Night). If you’re interested in volunteering, send us an email at womenscenter@umbc.edu. Please note, we may not always be able to accommodate volunteer interest.

Volunteers are integral in making Women's Center events like the Clothesline Project and Take Back the Night successful.
