Volunteering at APAA Print

APAA is a volunteer-driven organization established in 1993 by members of the African Community to raise awareness and educate the African and Black Communities on the issues surrounding HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention, as well respond to the increased need for services intended to assist Africans living with HIV/AIDS.

Volunteers are an important part of the team here at APAA and they host many activities that include HIV/AIDS peer education and prevention workshops. Volunteers also provide outreach within their communities and to other HIV/AIDS related organizations.

Our range of volunteer opportunities offers you the chance to work with us in many different and rewarding ways.
