Thank you so much for your interest in working with All-Options! At All-Options people can find open-hearted support for all their experiences with pregnancy, parenting, abortion, and adoption. These issues are complex and every person’s reality is different, but we know one thing for certain: everyone deserves to have all options!

If you are interested in interning or volunteering with us, please fill out this application, and someone will be in touch with you about next steps. Thanks! 

Question Title

* 1. Our current intern and volunteer opportunities:

-All-Options Interns provide peer counseling support to callers on our national Talkline and in-person to clients seeking diaper assistance through our Hoosier Diaper Program, abortion funding through our state-wide Hoosier Abortion Fund, pregnancy tests, and pregnancy options counseling. Interns will also work on a self-directed project. Following the completion of their training, interns must be able to intern 8-16 hours a month, generally between 10am-5pm Tuesday-Friday. While our internships are unpaid at this time, we can work with you to fulfill requirements from your school or other program.

-All-Options Volunteer Peer Counseling Advocates primarily provide peer counseling support to callers on our national Talkline, though they are also welcome to provide volunteer support to the Hoosier Diaper Program and Hoosier Abortion Fund if their availability allows them to do so. Following the completion of their training, volunteer advocates must be able to volunteer on the Talkline 12-15 hours a month. We are prioritizing prospective volunteers who are billingual English/Spanish language speakers. 

All volunteer advocates and interns must complete a 40-hour training in Bloomington. The training is usually scheduled for 4 Wednesday evenings, and 4 weekend days (Saturday or Sunday). The next volunteer advocate and intern training will take place September 26 to October 20, 2018. 

-Practical Support Network Volunteers 
provide tangible assistance to people seeking abortions; it can be anything from giving someone a ride to their appointment, sitting with them in the waiting room to provide emotional support, helping folks arrange lodging and childcare accommodations, or providing material support to help offset the cost of care and lost wages (diapers, gas cards, post-abortion care packages). Practical support may look different from community to community, based on their specific needs; we aim to tailor the kinds of practical support to the communities we serve. Practical support volunteers will need to attend a full day training prior to providing any support to HAF clients. The training will introduce volunteers to All-Options and our approach, the abortion procedure and laws surrounding it in Indiana, and guide folks in interacting with HAF clients in an open-hearted, judgment-free way. We are prioritizing Practical Support Network Volunteers who live in or near South Bend, Indianapolis, or Bloomington, but we'd love to hear from you wherever you are in Indiana!

Trainings for Practical Support Network Volunteers have been scheduled for the following locations and dates: 
-South Bend: August 11, 2018, 10am-5pm
-Bloomington: August 18, 2018, 10am-5pm
-Indianapolis: November 10, 2018, 10am-5pm

-All-Options Activist Squad volunteers contribute to our advocacy and movement-building work throughout Indiana. Activist squad volunteers will be expected to help with event planning, lobbying, communicating with legislators, fundraising, and other advocacy efforts. Activist squad volunteers will undergo a half-day training, and will be expected to volunteer 5-10 hours a month (flexible daytime, evening, and weekend hours). 

Training for the All-Options Activist Squad has not been scheduled yet; stay tuned!
