Apply to be a volunteer or intern

We love and appreciate our volunteers and interns.  Without your help, our mission could not be completed.  Even if you don’t understand harm reduction.  Or you don’t know what living with HIV is like.  Or you’ve never experienced shame because of drug use.  All you need is an open mind and compassion for others.

We need you. Please consider applying today.  Send an email to [email protected] and please include your contact information so we can get back to you.

The right match can help you to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career.”  Read more here.
