With Us

Fall 2023 Patient Advocacy Fellowship

As a Patient Advocacy Fellow, you will bring your lived experience and perspective into the non-profit political advocacy space as we work to advance the mission of Planned Parenthood.
Fellows will work with PPAO staff to develop and hone grassroots organizing skills that will form the foundation of our long-term strategy to advance the movement for reproductive freedom and justice.

Through extensive training with PPAO/PP PAC staff, Patient Advocacy Fellows will gain real-world experience and valuable résumé-building skills in many aspects of political and community engagement work including: recruiting and developing patient advocates through our Health Center Advocacy Program (HCAP), door-to-door canvassing to destigmatize abortion and abortion access; and taking leadership roles in voter registration, volunteer recruitment, community care and sustainability, digital organizing and data management. After completing our program, Fellows have gone on to be appointed to public office and hired as staff at PPAO, the Oregon Legislature and political campaigns.


We ask our fellows to engage in this work deeply and rigorously, which is why fellows must be able to commit to up to 10 hours a week, primarily weeknights and some weekends. This is a part-time, hourly, limited-term position at $15/hour with a maximum of 10 hours a week. This fellowship is a 12-week experience that will be conducted hybrid remote and in-person. While our staff are based out of Eugene and Portland, we encourage applications from all regions of Oregon.
