Volunteer with Planned Parenthood of Illinois
The Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, reversing 50 years of precedent that gave us our abortion rights. 26 states are expected to quickly move to ban abortion, including every state that borders Illinois. Millions of people could lose access to care, and Illinois will serve as a haven state for the entire Midwest.
We’re fighting back with everything we have, but we need your help as we prepare to care for more patients than ever before.
We need dedicated volunteers like you to step up and defend reproductive health care for everyone, everywhere. Whatever your comfort level and capacities are, we have a place for you here at PPIL. Keep reading to learn more!
Volunteer with us
PPIL volunteers support us in various ways throughout the year. During the summer, we focus on visibility and supporter appreciation, and you'll often find our volunteers tabling at health fairs, colleges, street festivals, concerts, farmers markets, and pride events throughout the state. We also have opportunities to provide support at our administrative locations, helping with things like data entry, volunteer screening, button-making, and general admin work.

Become a Clinic Escort
Clinic escorts are invaluable volunteers who help make safe, legal abortion possible.
Our clinic escorts are committed to ensuring the safety of our patients and their loved ones. Escorts stand near our health center entrances to greet patients and help ensure they can safely reach the front doors without harassment from protestors.
As the first people our patients see when they arrive, our volunteer escorts are the face of Planned Parenthood of Illinois. And we frequently hear from patients who are grateful for the compassion and support our escorts provide.
We need escorts statewide. Our biggest current need is at our suburban locations and in Central Illinois:
- Chicago (Near North neighborhood)
We anticipate launching additional escort programs in coming months.
All potential escorts must attend a volunteer orientation. Use the buttons below to get started!
