Saturday Services Section | "We are eager to help all women, trans*, and gender non-conforming individuals every Saturday."
Saturday Services is committed to comprehensive and culturally competent care for individuals who do not identify as cisgender men (this includes trans individuals, women, and gender non-conforming individuals).
Saturday Services focuses on the genitourinary and reproductive health of individuals who do not identify as cisgender men. With an emphasis on client-centeredness and client-empowerment, the volunteer lay health care workers of Saturday Services work to provide education, information, and free services for the following concerns:
Asymptomatic (routine) STI testing
Testing and treatment for Urinary Tract Infections
Testing and treatment for symptomatic STI concerns
Pap smears and pelvic exams for certain symptomatic STI concerns
The Saturday Services training consists of classes taken on weekends over the course of a four-month time period. Classes emphasize various sexual and reproductive health concerns, in addition to competency regarding specific gender, race, and orientation experiences of health.
Saturday Services accepts volunteers of all genders except individuals who identify as cisgender men.
Healthcare Professionals Interested in Volunteering
Saturday Services utilizes one “Shift Professional” onsite every weekend to oversee pap smears and pelvic exams. If you are a non-cisgender male doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or other healthcare professional interested in volunteering your time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Thanks!
Applications are closed until Winter 2019.
If you are interested in getting more info about volunteering, please attend an All-Clinic Orientation (ACO)! that takes place the third Monday of every month at 7:30PM. We will be there to answer any questions you have about the funding section and talk about your interests. Please note, it is requirement for all prospective volunteers (except GMHC administrative volunteers) to attend an ACO.
