Health Center Advocacy Volunteer - Kennewick, WA


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.




As a Health Center Advocacy volunteer, you will gain crucial experience in the nonprofit and advocacy fields and be a driving force in Planned Parenthood’s effort to educate patients and health center visitors. You will work inside targeted health center lobbies and/or waiting rooms to educate patients and engage them in advocacy. Specifically, you share current talking points/issue updates and invite visitors to sign the latest petition. You’ll ask if they’d be willing to share their story and also offer a voter registration opportunity.

The Health Center Advocacy Program seeks to establish a support base that accurately reflects the diversity of the varying groups of people who utilize our services and to provide these supporters with a range of ways to get involved in our work. Often, this is the first point of entry for a patient to become a supporter and volunteer. By engaging patients in advocacy we can educate and encourage them to be civically engaged in their community and protect access to health care.
