Volunteering at The Aliveness Project is fun and has a huge impact on the lives of people living with HIV in Minnesota.
Onsite Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers are vital to the success of our day-to-day programs and it’s a great way to make connections in the community. 30-40 people volunteer at The Aliveness Project each week. Positions include kitchen assistants, front desk receptionists, food shelf workers, office and administrative assistants, gardeners, and skill-based volunteers.
Therapeutic Skills Volunteer Opportunities
Our Integrative Therapies Program emphasizes a holistic approach to health and well-being. It relies on volunteers who are licensed therapists and professionals with expertise in a variety of areas including acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, counseling, healing touch, massage, reflexology, shiatsu, tai chi, and yoga.
Holiday Gift Program
Holiday Gift Expo Volunteer
Members can sign up to receive a gift during the holidays that includes winter wear, homemade cookies, holiday stockings, and toys. Volunteers are a vital part of the process in ensuring the holidays feel special for our members.
If you're interested in volunteering from home, bake your favorite holiday cookies, decorate tags or cards (Aliveness provides tags), or sew stockings (download pattern). Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Volunteers are needed on December 20 to volunteer at the Holiday Expo and Party as a host, present wrapper, or station leader. On December 22, deliver gifts to home-bound members in the metro area. Fill out the interest form below to get started.
On the last Thursday in April, restaurants across Minnesota participate in Dining Out For Life, a fundraiser where restaurants donate a percentage of their sales to The Aliveness Project. Volunteer Ambassadors help on the day of the event at each restaurant by helping fill the restaurant, talking to diners about Aliveness, and asking for additional donations. Volunteers are also needed to help with administrative and promotion duties leading up to Dining Out For Life and the day of the event.
Group Volunteer Opportunities
The Aliveness Project has several opportunities for small groups (2-15 people) to volunteer together, including maintenance and organizing projects, event preparation, assistance during events, and more.
