Student Placements

Are you interested in becoming a placement student or completing an internship at Planned Parenthood Ottawa?

Here is what you need to know!

Want to get involved?

Planned Parenthood Ottawa is a small non-profit looking for students with strong anti-oppression skills who want to learn more about supporting others with sexual and reproductive health in Ottawa. We have historically taken on students with an education background in medicine, communications, social services, sociology, social work, as well as women and gender studies.

When applying to be a placement student at PPO, please send a cover letter and a resume to the executive director at director@ppottawa.ca

In your cover letter be sure to include why you want to be a placement student with PPO, and how you see yourself fitting with PPO’s values. If you are hoping to be placed within a program that is currently running, please also include the program coordinator in your email. For more information about our programs and the staff you can work with, please visit program pages and our team page.

Availability for Fall 2021

  • While our Navigating Relationships Curriculum program loves working with placement students, we currently don’t currently have the capacity to work with any additional students until Spring 2022.
  • Our Options Program is currently looking for a new coordinator and therefore will not be taking placement students at this time. 
  • Our Communications and Volunteer Coordinator does not currently have the space to work with additional students at this time. Communications has a student placement at this time. Additional students can inquire about a placement in Spring  2022.

    For Winter 2022 placement opportunities contact the ED at at director@ppottawa.ca with a resume, cover letter, areas of interest,  and the program coordinator of interest as applicable.
