Volunteers are an important part of service provision. They fill in the gaps and lighten the load, especially at this time of increasing demand for services along with a reduction in government funding many non profits agencies are encountering. We appreciate and value the time, and compassion that volunteers bring to us. Following are some of the volunteer opportunities that are available with AIDS Response Effort.

Volunteer Coordinator

 Main responsibilities include further development of volunteer program through volunteer recruitment, orientation, oversight and monitoring.

Office Assistant

Help with data entry, filing and other duties as needed.

Event Volunteer

Assist with organizing, publicizing or being available to help on the day of the event. Some of the typical events are HIV Awareness Walk, National HIV Testing Days, World AIDS Day events, and various fundraising events such as the annual Mardi Gras Ball.10868161_878612745493249_2123735228325576310_n

    I am a pharmacy student (P1) at Shenandoah University, in Winchester. I believe it was Ms. Janet Tinkam that came and spoke with our Communications class. I was wondering how I could volunteer with this organization. Thank you.
