Internship Position


 Internship Description:

More than 400 volunteers help staff virtually every department at Nashville CARES, including Client Services, Fund Development, Education, General Office, Administration and Special events.

 

Every day volunteers are helping clients directly by delivering food for CARE-a-Van Cuisine. Members of congregation-based Interfaith CARE Teams are cleaning clients' homes, driving them to the doctor, going to the grocery, or providing pastoral support. 

 

Volunteers staff the HEARTLine, answering the thousands of requests for help from clients, giving information about HIV to people who fear they or a loved one have been exposed, and making referrals either within CARES or to another service that can help. 

 

Still other volunteers participate in the many outreach programs of the Education Department, speaking to community groups about CARES, staffing booths at community events, going onto the internet to educate people in chat rooms, or distributing prevention materials on the streets. Volunteers are the mainstay of many office activities, seeing to it that newsletters and invitations are mailed on time or doing critical data entry. 

 

And, of course, none of CARES's special events such as the AIDS Walk and Artrageous could happen without the help of volunteers to plan and execute all the many important functions, from design work to setup and breakdown. 

 

Whatever your skills or interests, we can find a place for you to make a difference at Nashville CARES and in the life of a person living with HIV and AIDS.
