†††††††††††††††††††† Volunteer Position

 

Hello Community Supporters,

 

Last year Community Care launched its free rapid HIV testing on Valentine's Day in Lake County. Free, rapid, anonymous HIV testing is a valuable community service that our counties have not had available for many years. We now have funding resources that will allow us to offer free rapid HIV testing in both Lake and Mendocino Counties monthly, but we are in need of State certified HIV Test Counselors. 

 

If there are any community members who would like to volunteer to become trained as a California State Certified HIV Test Counselor please let us know. Conducting HIV tests is an incredibly rewarding and powerful way to give back to the community. As a Test Counselor you will attend a free week certification program in Sonoma County that will equip you will all the tools you will need to conduct the OraQuick Rapid HIV1/2 test and work with people getting tested in a professional and compassionate manner. For our program we use the oral fluid test so there is no finger prick or blood. Test Counselors also talk with clients about any concerns they may have and offer valuable resources and community referrals for additional services, if the client desires. 

 

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer HIV Test Counselor please contact Community Care at (707) 468-9347. If you would like more information about HIV/AIDS and HIV testing please visit the following websites:
