Thanks you so much for your interest in volunteering at Emma. We have a strong and vibrant volunteer program and look forward to the opportunity to meet with you. At the bottom of this form is a volunteer application that you can download and return to the clinic at your convenience.

Our volunteer opportunities vary and are based on not only skills, interest and experience, but the amount of time that you are able to contribute to the clinic.  Listed below are some of the opportunities. Please indicate on your application those you are interested in. 

  • Board of Directors- This is the governing board of the clinic. It is made up of regional and local community members. They meet 1 evening per month and you are expected to be active on 1 committee that meets 1 time per month.
  • Volunteer Night- We have a monthly Volunteer Night on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. This is an opportunity for folks who may not have regular availability during our open hours.
  • Speakers Bureau - This involves a 4 part training and occasional weekend and evening speaking engagement as requested on a variety of topics. (Contraceptives, Women's Health, Abortion related issues, Emma Goldman Clinic services, mission, etc.)
  • Direct Service Training- We ask that you have volunteered with the clinic in an administrative (non-client) capacity for at least 1 semester prior to client contact volunteer experiences. This enables us to determine that you are a good fit for our mission and service delivery philosophy. The time commitment includes being able to complete the training and to volunteer in the service 1 four hour shift per week for a year. The shifts are determined by the service area you would be trained in.
