We have several different opportunities for you to volunteer with RAIN – there is a place for each and every one of you to stand out in the crowd.
All volunteers must attend a one hour volunteer orientation which occurs on the second Wednesday of every other month (February, April, June, August, October, December). During orientation you will learn more about RAIN, including various programs we provide to our clients and community,HIV 101, and how you can become more actively involved. Client support volunteers will need to attend an additional training session to learn about many aspects of HIV/AIDS such as current statistics, universal precautions, social and emotional impact of the disease, and spirituality of HIV/AIDS.
There are two options for the volunteer orientation – webinar (12:00 to 1:00 PM) or in person (6:00 to 7:00 PM). Contact Steven Burleson for the next opportunity and to RSVP.
Client support volunteers work directly with our clients, and their families, offering holistic support in a variety of ways such as phone calls, transportation, and friendship.
Office support volunteers work in the RAIN office helping with the front desk to filing to special office projects.
Event support volunteers assist with RAIN’s key fundraising events: AIDS WALK Charlotte, Gay Bingo Charlotte, and the World AIDS Day Luncheon. Event support volunteers can also assist with different community events throughout the year such as the White Party – Farewell to Summer and Charlotte Pride & Parade.
