Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania

From teens to senior citizens, our diverse network of volunteers donates thousands of hours of time and energy to Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania (PPSP) each year. Our team of dedicated volunteers is crucial to helping PPSP provide, promote, and protect reproductive healthcare services. We hope you will consider joining them in their efforts.

All volunteers must fill out the application below. After we receive your application, we will contact you about scheduling a 30 minute interview. We will contact two professional references following the interview. Please understand that filling out an application does not guarantee a volunteer position. The application process can take up to 4-6 weeks.
