The purpose of the Sidewalk Intern Program is to maintain a pro-life presence on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood every day that they are open.
Interns are trained as Sidewalk Advocates for Life through the national Sidewalk Advocates program (SidewalkAdvocates.org). They then participate in ongoing training for their duties. These dedicated young adults offer gift bags to the clients they encounter in the parking lot. The bags contain personal care items for the client as well as a coupon for a free ultrasound/pregnancy-test and brochures regarding low- or no-cost health care service locations throughout San Antonio.
The goal of the interns is to engage clients in conversation with the hope of turning them away from Planned Parenthood and leading them to other life-affirming locations for help. Since its inception, the program has continued to grow in effectiveness. To date, the interns have distributed over 7700 gift bags, referred over 300 girls to A Woman’s Haven and other pregnancy care centers, and referred over 280 girls and guys to other healthcare options.
