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.
