We hold formal training sessions throughout the year. Upcoming training sessions will be announced on this blog. We strive to have a training class once every two-three months during the year. We ask new escorts to attend the next training available, though we do not require training prior to getting involved.
If you are considering becoming an escort, please start by reading our Points of Unity. There is a link to them at the top of this blog.
Escorting is an intense emotional experience for some people. We realize it is not for everyone. We encourage you to review the types of antis you will encounter before coming out to join us. There are articles describing these types (Pick an Anti-Part 1 and Pick an Anti-Part 2) and video (A Powerful Project) and an article explaining the CPC next door to the clinic..
We encourage prospective escorts to come and observe at least once before deciding to escort.
We meet in front of EMW Women’s Surgical Center, 138 W. Market on Saturday at 6:50am and are usually finished by 8:30am or 9:00am. Tuesday through Friday we meet at 7:00am and are usually finished by 8:30am. Introduce yourself to someone wearing an orange Clinic Escort vest and let them know it is your first time at the clinic. They will advise you on the best place to stand for observation.
New escort orientation includes:
- Observing only for at least two times
- Pairing with an experienced escort mentor and shadowing that mentor for several times.
- Attend the next training class
