Why volunteer?

Volunteering with the Legal Network is a valuable experience. It can allow you to acquire knowledge, gain insights and make contacts, while defending the legal and human rights of people living with or affected by HIV or AIDS.

Before applying

Think about the following questions and please let us know your answers:

  • When am I available (e.g., during daytime hours, during the week, or only evenings and weekends)?
  • How much time can I volunteer?
  • Do I want to work in or out of the office?
  • What skills can I offer? (Identify 2 or 3 skills, which could include experience in making contacts by phone; ability to use software such as Word or Excel; writing skills, including in languages other than English; experience in providing reception or filing services; research abilities; etc.)
  • What do I want to gain from this experience? (Volunteering will be more fulfilling if you let us know what you’re looking for; e.g., experience to add to your resumé, a way to support a worthy cause, social relationships or contacts within the community of non-governmental organizations.)

Available opportunities

  • Advocacy Campaign — Gathering and updating information on members of Parliament or members of a provincial/territorial legislature or municipal government; contacting people by phone or e-mail; writing advocacy material; developing web content, including video and text; programming and designing for websites.
  • Office Assistance — Greeting people at reception; answering phone calls and helping respond to e-mails; supporting mailings; assisting at events.
  • Policy Research — Performing research; helping formulate policy and legal briefs; summarizing in-depth research reports.
