Upcoming Trainings

(updated 8-November-2017)

We’ve received a great number of emails and messages since November asking how you can help. Take a look at our “What Can I Do Now?” blog post for answers to your questions.

WACDTF truly appreciates and values all those who are interested in volunteering as clinic escorts.

Escorts are generally needed each Saturday, rain or shine, between 6:45-11:00 am, depending on the clinic. We also need escorts on some weekdays at certain locations.

You may want to attend a training if you:

  • want to be a clinic escort and have never been trained
  • want to find out what clinic escorting is like before you decide to start
  • have received only a mini-training at clinic; or
  • were trained by an organization other than WACDTF.
  • Current escorts are welcome to participate in trainings for a refresher or to offer their experience.

Upcoming Escort Trainings:

At this time, we do not have a need for additional escorts for Saturday mornings at our DC and Maryland clinics.  We do, however, have a need for weekday escorts in DC and Saturday escorts in Northern Virginia.  Please review the information about these upcoming training sessions specific to our need for escorts:
