Get Involved – Volunteer

HIV North Society loves our volunteers! We provide any training you will need and welcome volunteers with a variety of skills. If you are interested in volunteering with us, here are some of the roles our volunteers take on in with us:

General Assistance

We have a variety of tasks around the office such as filing, greeting clients, answering phones and making needle packs for our needle exchange program.

Outreach / Client Support

Our staff do a number of outreach activities throughout the week including street outreach (daytime and evening), Coffee Time at the Salvation Army and special events in the evenings. We hand out supplies, chat, play cards and share information regarding HIV/AIDS and STIs. You will be paired with a staff member for each of these events.

GLBTQ Youth Drop In

Experienced and passionate youth workers may volunteer at our weekly youth drop in which focuses on building up local youth, many of whom identify as GLBTQ. A Child Welfare check is required for those working with youth.

Women’s Drop In

We provide a safe place for sex trade workers to come to access services and get off the streets for a time. We are always interested in having volunteers for the Drop In but specifically need more people who are willing to cook a meal for this event.
Note: You will need a Criminal Record Check.
