about volunteering

THE BAKERSFIELD PREGNANCY CENTER is a Christ–centered ministry committed to upholding the sanctity of human life, promoting sexual purity and healthy relationships, providing education and support (physical, emotional and spiritual) for men and women with pregnancy related concerns, facilitating healing for those who have experienced abortion or other pregnancy loss, and proclaiming the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ.
 
Volunteers serve in virtually every area of the center, on the "front lines" of client services, as support services providers and as occasional helpers with special events. Initial training workshops, on-the-job orientation, and monthly  in-service training meetings are provided to help volunteers develop their gifts and talents.
 
The minimum age for receptionists is 18.  Counselors and recovery group leaders must be at least 21.  Elementary school age children and teens may perform behind-the-scenes service appropriate to their age and maturity level, under the supervision of a parent or other adult.
 
Regular participation in a local church and willingness to subscribe to the Center's Commitment of Care and Competence, Statement of Faith and confidentiality policy are required (read our about us tab).  Volunteers are also asked to pledge that they will live a lifestyle of sexual purity in accordance with biblical principles.
