Volunteering With Planned Parenthood
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Planned Parenthood in Oregon and SW Washington! Volunteers are an important part of Planned Parenthood. Their support makes it possible for us to meet the growing need for health services in our community. In 2014, more than 300 volunteers contributed more than 11,000 volunteer hours, supporting our health centers, special events, fundraising efforts, advocacy and community outreach, and education programs.
There are many ways to get involved as a volunteer. Below is a brief description of the various types of opportunities we have to offer. Please note that not all positions are available at all times. Thanks again for your wish to give back to Planned Parenthood!
Common Volunteer Opportunities:
Assist with a variety of projects at the Regional Service Center in NE Portland to support our administrative departments including Development, Accounting, Education and Marketing. Volunteer shifts are mostly clerical and are available during standard office hours. Actual schedules can usually be made flexible to your needs.
Our health centers provide affordable, confidential, high-quality sexual and reproductive health care services to more than 57,000 patients each year. We couldn't do this without the support of our amazing volunteers! Please note that any volunteer positions with patient contact require significant pre-screening, training and a time commitment.

You can volunteer at a number of special events throughout the Portland Metro area, Salem and in Central Oregon by providing support through guest registration, selling merchandise, assisting with silent auctions, and various other event support.
