Patient Advocacy Program

The Patient Advocacy Program (PAP) is an opportunity to educate, empower, and engage patients and visitors at Planned Parenthood Great Plains (PPGP) health centers to become advocates for their own health.  PAP Volunteers work to further our mission, break the stigma of abortion, greet health center visitors, canvass neighborhoods to provide information about community concerns, and uphold a reproductive justice framework in our community organizing and events.

Types of Activities

  • Engage visitors to PPGP health centers by sharing information on how they can sign up as supporters, share their story, or take other actions.
  • Encourage health center visitors to engage in advocacy work related to Planned Parenthood campaigns.
  • Help with seasonal campaigns such as voter registration and local campaigns, as needed.
  • Canvass local neighborhoods through the Healthy Neighborhood Canvassing initiative to inform communities about reproductive health care and other areas of health and wellness.
  • Complete ongoing training and follow our non-engagement protocols.

 

      *Volunteer commitment of up to 5 hours per week for 3 months.
