GMHC - Fight Aids. Love Life.


Volunteering has been the cornerstone of GMHC’s mission since our very beginning in 1981, when a group of volunteers saw the need to educate the public about a fast-growing epidemic and to support those affected by HIV and AIDS. Volunteers continue to be an essential part of our ability to provide life-saving services and you can be a part of the vital volunteer community at GMHC.

To volunteer at GMHC, please complete the following steps:

Step 1: Print out the Volunteer Application and bring a completed copy of it with you our Volunteer Orientation (see Step 2).

Step 2: Attend a Volunteer Orientation session. The session will last about 90 minutes and covers the history and mission of our organization, the services we provide, the volunteer roles that are currently available, and our volunteer policies. No reservation is required. Please note that we will be presenting the Volunteer Orientation on a reduced summer schedule through the end of August 2017. The Volunteer Orientation will be offered only on the following Wednesdays, beginning at 10:30 am at 446 West 33rd Street:

         Wednesday, August 9
         Wednesday, August 23

A regular weekly schedule will resume after Labor Day.

Step 3: At the end of the Volunteer Orientation, the Coordinator of The Volunteer Center will meet with you individually to identify the position that interests you and will assist you with placing you in that role. Most volunteer positions require availability during our regular hours of operation, Monday through Friday from 9 am to 6 pm.
