General Training Information

The below form is for applying to our 2018 training class, but the information on our application and training still holds! For information on upcoming trainings, please sign up for our newsletter here.

The Doula Project is seeking smart, awesome, caring New York City-based volunteers!

People who are passionate, caring, and committed are encouraged to apply. Any experience in doula work, reproductive health, rights and justice work, abortion counseling, health service, or personal experiences can be helpful, but isn’t necessary.

We strongly encourage people of color, Indigenous people; people with dis/abilities; trans* or genderqueer identified people; queer-identified people; people born outside the USA; Spanish speakers; people living with HIV/AIDS; and people of faith to apply. You do not need to be a documented USA citizen in order to apply.

People with flexible/free weekdays are ideal. Priority will be given to those who can commit to at least two shifts on weekdays per month. You MUST be a resident of the NYC metro area at the time you submit your application. Only people committed to a minimum of one year of volunteering with The Doula Project will be accepted into this training.

If you are interested in working with us, we are accepting applications now through midnight on March 18th, 2018. We do not accept late applications. Decisions will be made in early May; please do not enquire about the status of your application before then.
