As a volunteer-based organization, much of our work is carried out through the phenomenal enthusiasm, dedication, and passion of our volunteers.
We invest heavily in our volunteers. Before beginning as a volunteer with PPO, all candidates must participate in our extensive volunteer training program to ensure that they reflect our pro-choice, rainbow-positive, sex-positive, and non-judgmental philosophy – and we need to help volunteers develop knowledge about sexual and reproductive health.
Our training is valued at $350 and is provided without cost to individuals who complete the training and become active volunteers. Participants are asked to provide a post-dated cheque for $150 that we only deposit if a volunteer decides they are not interested or able to contribute as a volunteer.
We strive to make PPO a safe and inclusive space for everyone and we welcome and celebrate diversity.
