Thank you for your interest in the volunteer opportunities at Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York!
Due to COVID-19, volunteer opportunities are limited. We are currently recruiting volunteer advocates for RESTORE, Sexual Assault Services. Learn to respond to hotline calls from survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones. Contact us for more information.
Volunteers are essential members of our team. Without them, we could not meet our mission to ensure that high quality reproductive health care services are available to all in our region regardless of ability to pay. We welcome you to our agency as a potential volunteer! Below is a listing of our current volunteer opportunities.
RESTORE Sexual Assault Services Advocate (Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming Counties)
RESTORE volunteers answer hotline and hospital calls in evenings and on weekends. They provide emotional support, discuss options available with the client, offer accompaniment to hospitals and with law enforcement and provide support and information to significant others. All applications will be screened and must complete a 40 hour training.
Health Center Escorts (Rochester, Batavia & Syracuse)
Health Center Escorts greet and accompany patients and visitors into our health centers. As a patient-centered organization, this provides a sense of comfort to everyone visiting. This role is for day-time hours and volunteers help a couple times a month.
Education & Outreach volunteers help staff table at community events. This role provides information on Planned Parenthood and where more resources can be found. Schedule varies, including evening and weekend hours.
We have a variety of student internships available during the academic year and in the summer. Internships are curriculum specific and location specific.
Each internship has specific requirements pertinent to the departmental assignment. Skills or educational background in the relevant academic curriculum is desired. Most student internship schedules are daytime hours, usually one to two days a week. All internships are unpaid.
Join our network and be the first to take action in the fight to protect reproductive rights.
Online activists for Planned Parenthood stay on top of the issues that matter and get involved with campaigns that advance and protect women's rights and health. We are so glad to have you with us, and will be in touch soon.
