DC Doulas for Choice Collective:

We are pleased to announce a call for applications for volunteers for an upcoming training to join the Collective. If you are interested in providing volunteer services to people having an abortion in the D.C./MD/VA area AND are available for a training June 9 & 10, 2012, we would love to hear from you.

The training will cost $20, which will cover the cost of supplies and breakfast. Participants will be asked to provide their own lunches. Please include a note in your application if this cost presents a financial hardship and we will work with you to ensure it does not create a barrier to participation.

If you CANNOT make the June training but are still interested in volunteering, still send us an email. There will be future opportunities to get trained. Contact us at (dcdoulasforchoice@gmail.comto be sure you receive notice when we accept applications for subsequent trainings.

NYC Doula Project:

Mandatory doula training will take place the weekend of July 14th and 15th (9am-5pm). In order to offset some of the cost of the training workshops, we will be asking each applicant accepted to the Doula Project to pay $25 on the first day of training.  We recognize that this may be difficult for some of us; if this is the case for you, please just drop us a line.  We will waive the workshop fee, no questions asked.

People with experience in doula work, reproductive health, rights and justice
work, abortion counseling or health services are encouraged to apply. People of color, queer and trans people and Spanish speakers are strongly desired. People with flexible/free weekdays are ideal.  While we are willing to negotiate for the right person, priority will be given to those who can commit to at least two weekdays a month.

If you are interested in working with us, we are accepting applications now through May 14th. Please send completed applications to
