Volunteer Opportunity: Planned Parenthood Toronto Teen Programming

Posted on August, 24 2015 by Action Canada

Action Canada’s associate organization Planned Parenthood Toronto (PPT) is looking for volunteers between the ages of 16-19 to run Teen Health Source!

Are you between the ages of 16-19 years old? Do you like to talk/write about sex? Then you should apply to be a peer volunteer with Teen Programming! Teen Programming volunteers run Teen Health Source, an information service for GTA youth with questions about sexual and reproductive health. At Teen Health Source, peer volunteers provide information to clients by phone, text, chat, and email. Volunteers also have a hand in creating new articles and content for the Teen Health Source website! Supported by PPT staff, all volunteers accepted into this program participate in a comprehensive training course, which will increase their knowledge of sexual and reproductive health and give them the necessary skills to help clients accessing Teen Health Source. In order to volunteer with this program, you must be able to commit to a minimum of three hours per week for one year.

How can I apply?

For more details and to apply, please download the volunteer application form (as a document) and e-mail it to: atownsend@ppt.on.ca or fax it to: (416) 961-2512, or mail it to: Andrew Townsend, 36B Prince Arthur Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1A9.
