Volunteer with Us
Whether you're looking to give two hours or forty hours of your time this semester, Women's Transit wants to bring you on as part of the team. No prior experience in ANYTHING is necessary because we'll train you! You don't even need a driver's license (we obviously won't place you as a driver, but there are many other things that you can do).
If you're interested in volunteering, watch this page for a link to our CougSync volunteer opportunities.

Who can volunteer?
All WSU students, staff, and members of the community can volunteer with us! All you have to do is sign up for a CougSync event opportunity and complete the training.
What is the time commitment?
The amount of time you put into Women's Transit is entirely up to you! You could sign up for a regular (2-hour) shift at the same time/day every week. You could do just one (2-hour) shift on a weekend or do as many weekend shifts as you want. You can even just be on the sub list. We want your volunteer experience to be a pleasant one, and we're willing to work with you to make that happen.
Does volunteering count as "community service"?
Of course! Your hours are inputted into CougSync and can be found with the hours you devote to other volunteer opportunities in the WSU community.
Are there any "perks" to volunteering?
Besides knowing that you're doing a great thing for the community? Yes! Women's Transit is known for taking great care of our volunteers. We provide snacks every night, and of course our Volunteer of the Week and Semester awards!
Who do I talk to for more information?
If you need more information you can contact the Program Coordinator by phone, email, or by coming into the Women's Resource Center (Wilson-Short Hall, Room 8) during normal business hours.
