Notice: Due to the current Covid 19 public health emergency, The AIDS Network has suspended most of our programs involving volunteers, and are not able to recruit or on-board new volunteers at this time. If you are interested in volunteering with The AIDS Network and wish to be contacted when we are able to return to volunteer recruitment and on-boarding, please contact James Diemert, Community Engagement Coordinator directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list
The strength of The AIDS Network lies in the commitment and services provided by the efforts of our dedicated volunteers. Without volunteers, we would be challenged to continue providing the broad scope of Support and Harm Reduction Services and extensive Educational Outreach that we offer.
It’s also a great way to meet new people and develop new skills.
Becoming a Volunteer
All volunteers must attend a general orientation about The AIDS Network’s services, volunteer roles, and responsibilities. The orientation also provides basic education on HIV & AIDS, as well as harm reduction. Depending on your area of interest, further program specific training is provided as needed.
All volunteers must agree to protect client confidentiality and accept in principle the current Mission Statement, Values, Objectives and Goals as set out in our Constitution. Volunteer positions involving direct client contact require a Police Clearance Certificate.
