Become a Community Health Educator.

Project HIM’s volunteer peer advocate program, the Street Team, is now the Community Health Educators. Under this new program, volunteers will gain valuable experience while helping in our mission to stop the spread of HIV in Iowa. We provide our volunteers with the education and training needed to serve at-risk population without shaming and free of stigma.

Community Health Educators will help promote a better understanding of HIV – in prevention, in treatment, and in linkage to care – that enriches the lives of the community they serve.

Check out our Volunteer page for ways you can be involved.
