Many Volunteers will contribute to HIV/AIDS initiatives during their service, regardless of their area of expertise. Currently, Cultural Life Tanzania trains all Volunteers who serve in Tanzania, be advocates and educators of HIV/AIDS prevention and care.

Volunteers help people affected by HIV/AIDS through work in areas such as public health education, community and nongovernmental organizations, and business advising. Volunteers do not provide direct medical care.

HIV/AIDS Volunteers face special challenges. Cultural Life Tanzania supports its Volunteers with preparation and training to work in an environment of grief and loss.

Below are HIV/AIDS opportunities in each of the primary program areas.

Health
Volunteers provide education and support for communities struggling with the impact of HIV/AIDS.

Cultural Life Tanzania health Volunteers serve in a broad range of areas, including HIV/AIDS education and prevention. HIV/AIDS Volunteers assist communities that are currently being ravaged socially and economically by the AIDS pandemic. Volunteering in the area of HIV/AIDS offers an opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of others.

Activities include working in an orphanage with HIV-positive children; implementing programs for at-risk youth; collaborating with faith-based organizations on prevention messages; working at a community HIV center; creating a support group for HIV-positive people; teaching-formally and informally about HIV/AIDS prevention and care; counseling and aiding local residents; and providing nutrition and hygiene education classes in communities.


Volunteer responsibilities
Education Volunteers have a tremendous impact on community development. Through the relationships they form with students, parents and other community members, Volunteers can plan a variety of outreach programs focusing on HIV/AIDS education. Volunteers can incorporate HIV/AIDS education into regular lesson plans, after-school programs, and school-wide assemblies and activities.

Youth outreach Volunteers bring much-needed HIV/AIDS education to young community members, helping to instill important prevention methods early on. Volunteers train youth as peer educators, coordinate with boys' and girls' camps, lead education and prevention programs targeted toward children, and organize support groups for children orphaned or suffering from HIV/AIDS.

Community development Volunteers are catalysts for change. They are continually engaged in defining their role in response to their host community, which many times includes the responsibility of HIV/AIDS educator. Community development Volunteers may plan and organize HIV/AIDS awareness programs or counsel community members with the disease. Some Volunteers may even be involved in constructing health centers in their communities.
