If you’re looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity where you can provide judgment-free support to people in all their reproductive decisions and experiences, you’ve found it! Every day, people call All-Options looking for a safe place to talk about abortion, parenting, pregnancy loss, adoption, infertility, and all the messy realities of being human.
All-Options Talkline Advocates provide open-hearted and unbiased peer counseling, support, and referrals to callers to our national, toll-free Talkline. Applicants who are accepted must complete a 40-hour training prior to taking calls, and commit to volunteering on the Talkline 12-15 hours/month and attending monthly meetings.
All-Options strives to build a volunteer team that reflects the diversity of our callers and communities. As such, we prioritize prospective volunteers who are people of color, trans and gender expansive, bilingual English/Spanish speakers, people with disabilities, and/or people with pregnancy, parenting, abortion, and adoption experiences. Applicants can be located anywhere in the United States!
The 40-hour Talkline Advocate training is a combination of virtual video-based meetings with the entire cohort and self-directed homework and study. Our next training will take place over 6 weeks (September 15-October 22, 2020). Virtual meetings will happen twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday afternoons) for 1 hour and 45 minutes each. The deadline to apply for this cohort is 11:59pm ET on Friday, August 14th. Apply here!
