WWAV Hosts First Volunteer Training Since the Storm

In November, WWAV hosted its first volunteer training since Hurricane Katrina, welcoming a boisterous group of potential volunteers to our temporary office space in the Art Egg building on Broad Street.

Potential volunteers had an opportunity to hear about the current work WWAV has been doing, and to find out ways they can apply their skills and interests to help support WWAV’s vision and work in New Orleans.

WWAV has relied on the help and support of volunteers in many ways over our past twenty-two years, and as we continue to rebuild and prepare to launch new programming in 2014, we are excited to have volunteers back with us, helping us to expand our work across the city and to further reach our communities

WWAV began as a street-based harm reduction outreach program, working in the communities hardest hit by HIV to provide people with the tools they needed to keep themselves safe. This continues to be a core part of our work, and many of the volunteers will be trained in community outreach, health education, and harm reduction.
