We need volunteers to walk patients and their families into the clinic and to provide a warm, welcoming presence to these women in the face of anti-choice protesters who are trying to shame and intimidate women from entering the clinic. Escorting experience and Spanish-speaking is a plus. A brief tour and training will be provided on-site.
We need help Saturdays from 7:00am to 11:00am - at Choices in Jamaica, Queens (close access to E train from Manhattan), which is located at 147-32 Jamaica Ave. Entrance is around the corner on 147th Place. Choices is 1 1/2-2 blocks from the E, J and Z trains (Sutphin Blvd/Archer Ave), the LIRR Jamaica Station.
Before coming out to volunteer, you MUST attend a new volunteer training, where we go over what to expect at the clinic, and answer any questions you may have.
Our next new volunteer training will be in Midtown Manhattan on Wednesday, July 19th, 2017 from 6:30-8:00 pm. The address will be emailed to you upon your RSVP. This training is mandatory.
We ask that you commit to joining us for 3 volunteer shifts over July, August and September. Please indicate below which Saturdays you are available and our volunteer coordinator will reach out and confirm your 3 shifts with you. (Please select as many dates as possible for scheduling purposes.)
If you cannot attend this training, please sign up here to join the wait list and we will inform you of future trainings: tinyurl.com/newvolinterest
