Become a volunteer with Planned Parenthood Ottawa!

A variety of tasks are required to keep PPO functioning, and PPO owes a lot of thanks to our amazing volunteers to help keep us going.

Volunteer Training

All new volunteers are required to attend our SRH (Sexual Reproductive Health) training offered once a year. We ask for a minimum commitment of 6 hours a month for at least one year from new volunteers.

We have officially closed our Spring 2022 volunteer recruitment. We will be re-open our recruitment in Spring 2023. 

Volunteering can look like…

Working to support staff programs, kiosking, sexual and reproductive health counselling, options phone line and office support. Other volunteer tasks may include assisting service users in navigating barriers to accessing SRH services, updating our educational materials, brainstorming to help with developing and creating materials, condom blitzing and much more.
