Volunteer Orientation and Trainings

SAAF provides various trainings to better prepare volunteers in serving clients and the community. Some volunteer positions require specific trainings that must be completed prior to volunteer placement.

Volunteer Orientation

Orientation gives a prospective volunteer the opportunity to learn what we do as an organization. Potential volunteers receive basic HIV/AIDS information, as well as information about trainings and volunteer opportunities available throughout the agency. Special emphasis is placed on the agency’s confidentiality policy, which all volunteers are required to abide by. This 3-hour training is offered every month, usually on the 3rd Tuesday, from 5:30pm-8:30pm except for once a quarter when it is held on Saturday morning from 10:00am-1:00pm.
