What's cool about being a Patient Greeter?
Patient Greeters are the first point of contact for patients to create a calm and welcoming presence while supporting access to PPSAT health centers. Patient Greeters will be stationed outside the health center with 1-5 other volunteers to greet patients and help ensure they reach the front doors without harassment from protestors.

    • Available to volunteer on weekday mornings
    • Welcoming and friendly to all
    • Able to maintain a clear and level head in stressful situations
    • Willing and able to be outside (rain or shine) health centers throughout shift duration

What You'll Do

    • Accompany patients who request support between their vehicles and the health center, and provide a necessary buffer between them and protestors
    • Maintain a peaceful environment for patients entering health centers
    • Assist with putting up and taking down signs, distributing and collecting greeter vests, and managing general volunteer supplies
    • Attend annual trainings with PPSAT to maintain volunteer compliance
