With nearly 300 chapters in the United States, Canada and Africa, Birthright offers a variety of ways to get involved including volunteering, donating, and opening a new chapter.

 

Get Involved

Birthright is unique. We provide non-judgmental support and love to pregnant women and their unborn children. Birthright is not involved in any religious movements, political activities, or lobbying. Our focus is on loving the mother, and helping her help herself.

 

Birthright welcomes volunteers of any age, race, gender, or religion who believe firmly in the Birthright philosophy and have a sincere desire to help pregnant women. If you feel you could be a Birthright volunteer, please enter your city and country in the Locations page, call 1-800-550-4900 or e-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Training for new Birthright volunteers starts with a full understanding of the philosophy of Birthright as outlined in its Charter and Policy Directives. New volunteers typically start by partnering with an experienced volunteer who is able to answer questions and explain the office operations. Volunteers are able to grow into their role in Birthright at their own pace and develop their knowledge and skills on an ongoing basis through continuous role-modeling with Birthright peers, reading and discussion, and the annual Birthright International conventions.

Providing emotional support and practical help to women is always the first priority of Birthright volunteers. After completing a training program, volunteers are assigned a regular shift at the Birthright office- usually 3-4 hours once a week- that suits the volunteers' schedule for reliable commitment for a period of time. Volunteers handle a variety of phone calls, including those from girls and women who are overwhelmed about being pregnant or fear they may be pregnant. Volunteers also help women who come to the office, whether for a free pregnancy test, referrals and information or for a welcoming friend. Some volunteers choose to help in other ways, such as sorting and distributing maternity and baby clothes, cleaning the office, gardening or administrative work. Experienced volunteers often make presentations to school and community groups about Birthright and its services.

Birthright services are always free for our clients. We rely solely on donations from generous supporters within the community to continue helping pregnant women in need. Monetary donations, as well as gifts of maternity and baby clothes, are gratefully accepted at all Birthright chapters.
