Meaningful internship opportunity in Elmira health center

Health Center Advocacy Program Intern

Locations:

Elmira Planned Parenthood Health Center Time Commitment: 8-9 hrs/week – 6 month commitment/semester long commitment required

Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes is seeking patient-advocates and volunteers to become Health Center Advocacy Program (HCAP) Interns. HCAP provides patients with opportunities to become advocates for themselves, their health, and their communities. This opportunity is a chance for volunteers to do advocacy outreach work inside health center waiting rooms. HCAP Volunteers will work closely with Public Affairs Staff on advocacy campaigns. HCAP Volunteers work specifically on advocacy campaigns with health center visitors in the waiting room only.

As a HCAP Intern, you must be available for at least 3-4 consecutive hours during three days a week that is consistent each week and this must be a time when your local PP health center is open (i.e. Every Tuesday and Thursday from 9AM-12PM). You will also be responsible for assisting the Public Affairs team with outreach to new supporters. HCAP Interns must commit to at least 6 months (or a semester) of volunteering at a time.

You must have access to reliable transportation to travel to the Elmira Health Center several times a week.

Duties & Responsibilities:

 PPSFL specific training

 Working within health center waiting rooms to promote and explain advocacy campaigns to patients

 Working closely with staff and other volunteers

 Tracking and reporting on HCAP activities

 Supporting incoming HCAP interns and volunteers

Desired Skilled & Attributes:

We prefer folks who have been a patient at PP previously so that you can better connect with patients in the waiting room; but this is not required

 Adaptive and flexible with excellent personal initiative

 Open-minded and culturally sensitive

 Able to work with a wide variety of people and personalities

 Ability to casually speak with others

 Good judgement and creativity

 Highly organized with attention to details.

 Familiarity with PP’s mission and ability to promote Planned Parenthood
