PPHP’s mission is to empower individuals to determine their own sexual health and reproductive futures. We invite you to join us in this mission and stand up for women’s health. Help people get the reproductive health care services and information they need to stay healthy.
Here are some of the ways you can get involved:
Volunteers play a vital role in advancing our mission. We need volunteers to assist in health centers, public affairs, fundraising, education and training, community outreach, and administration. Whether you have a couple hours each week, or a couple hours once in a while, we'll work together to find the right fit and schedule for you!
If you are looking to volunteer on a regular, scheduled basis in one of our health centers or administrative offices, please complete the Volunteer Application and our Human Resources Department will contact you to discuss your interests and our orientation program.
If you are looking to volunteer less frequently but still want to make an impact, please review the activities available this month and sign up for what interests you. This calendar is updated each month with new opportunities.
If you are a student seeking an academic internship, we would love to speak with you. Complete the Internship Application and a member of our Human Resources Department will contact you.
Join our online campaigns and make sure that local and statewide elected officials are made aware of constituent support of Planned Parenthood, sexuality education, keeping abortion safe and legal, and increasing access to health services through targeted emails and petitions. Sign up for Planned Parenthood newsletters to learn about online activities you can be a part of.
Your financial support means so much to those we provide services to. Our health centers are open to everyone, regardless of their ability pay, and that is because of our generous supporters. Help ensure that our doors stay open by making a donation today.

Are you a student? Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood and PP Generation are nationwide programs that aim to educate and inspire a new generation of young adults to advocate reproductive freedom. Students organize events on campus to raise public awareness, educate their peers, work with local Planned Parenthood health centers, and assist in making sexual health a public health and cultural imperative. PPHP’s local student groups are at Stony Brook University, Sarah Lawrence College, Pace University, Farmingdale State College, and Purchase College. Email [email protected] for more information.
