Volunteer

Our organization would not exist if it weren’t for volunteers. They are critical to the continued success of our programs and operations. Our volunteers give about 5,000 hours a year, which means approximately 400 hours every month. The investment of your time in HIV Community Link is a positive contribution to your community. We believe that education, advocacy, and volunteerism are key to achieving our mission of empowering Choices, engaging Communities, and ending Transmission.

If you are interested in becoming a part of our volunteer team, please complete a volunteer application. Once you have completed an application, we will contact you to discuss your volunteer involvement. You can apply to a specific position, or just apply to be added to the volunteer mailing list for when new opportunities arise.
