Thank you for your interest in getting involved with HYPE. We currently offer the following opportunities:
Board membership: We are currently seeking new Board members with expertise, skills, and time to help advance HYPE’s mission and vision as we move into a period of growth and expansion. Board members guide the direction and future of the organization, and are the foundation of the organization.
Skills-based volunteering: HYPE is currently recruiting volunteers with specialized skill-sets, and volunteers with an interest in growing and honing their existing skills. Volunteering is both a great way to utilize your talents to advance HYPE’s mission, to develop as a leader, learn as a member of a team, and empower yourself and your community.
At HYPE, skills-based volunteers put their own personal specialized knowledge to use - whether this knowledge comes from formal education, life experience, or past community service. Volunteers play a huge role in the organization. In fact, for now, the HYPE team is made up entirely of volunteers. Volunteering can take many forms, from providing consultations to agencies that are seeking to better engage HIV-positive and HIV-affected youth, to executing projects for the Executive Director and Board of Directors to support the mission and vision of the organization. Do you want to support us by helping with our work? If so, then do not hesitate to contact us
Some of the Best Reasons to Volunteer
Some of the best reasons to give are the ones you may not have considered — the ones that make it worth your while to go that extra step. People who have spent time volunteering for a cause report that they get back in satisfaction and joy more than they ever expend in inconvenience or effort — what you get back is immeasurable. You'll also receive these benefits:
Volunteering makes you feel needed.
Volunteering leads to learning new skills.
Volunteering helps you deal with some of your personal problems.
Volunteering helps you meet new people and breaks down barriers of misunderstanding, mistrust and fear.
Volunteering creates new contacts to help your business or career.
