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. You can find a list of current volunteer opportunities, and their position descriptions below.

Volunteer for Splash of Red 2017!

We wouldn’t be able to host the fabulous evening without a big group of enthusiastic and helpful volunteers! We require volunteers for three different shifts on both event day (May 27) and post-event (May 28). The shifts are as follows:

Saturday May 27 (Day): 10 am to 3 pm
- These volunteers will help set up the Alberta Room at the Fairmont Palliser for a fun and fabulous evening for our guests. This is a great chance to help out if you already have plans for the evening and can’t make it to the event.

Saturday May 27 (Evening): ~5 pm to ~12:00 am (various shifts)
- We need a large number of volunteers to assist in processing donations, monitoring the auction, greeting, and ensuring the event runs smoothly! If you’re available, book yourself off now and we will be sure to find a spot for you!

Sunday May 28 (Morning): 9 am to Noon
- After the fun of the evening is over, we need a few people to help us make sure we get all our supplies back to our office. Bring your energy and enthusiasm on this Sunday morning!

If you’re interested, please e-mail Nolan at volunteer@hivcl.org for more info, or check out our Volunteer Sign Up form and return it to him!

Volunteer Activity Nights

If you’re looking for a fun and simple way to give back to HIV Community Link you can join us for our monthly Volunteer Activity Night! Join us on the third Wednesday of every month, where you’ll help us pack our condom packs which are distributed across the city in bars, community centres, and at special events to promote safer sex and provide information on testing options in Calgary. You’ll also get to enjoy some pizza, all while meeting other volunteers and contributing to the work of our numerous outreach and education programs!

Our next volunteer activity night is May 24, from 5-7 pm. Just drop in any time throughout the night and join in the fun!

For more information on volunteering, please contact Nolan, our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@hivcl.org or by calling (403) 508-2500 option 5.
