Volunteering at The Aliveness Project is fun and has a huge impact on the lives of people living with HIV in Minnesota.
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.
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.
The Red Ribbon Ride is a fully supported, 2 day, 150+ mile bike ride through Greater Minnesota benefiting three HIV/AIDS service organizations in Minnesota: The Aliveness Project, One Heartland, and Rural AIDS Action Network. The 2022 ride will take place August 19-21. Our volunteers are critical to creating the “traveling love bubble” that has become the hallmark of the Red Ribbon Ride. Volunteers help with organizing the route, running pit stops, caring for riders, and bringing the fun! These folks are the early risers and go getters with big hearts to keep the ride rolling through the finish line. If you are looking for a challenging yet rewarding experience and want to experience the beauty of Minnesota, this opportunity is for you! Sign-up at: redribbonride.org
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. The Holiday Gift Program is also a great way for groups to get involved at Aliveness, see more information above. *Due to COVID-19, group volunteering opportunities are not available.
