IGNITE is Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS‘ outreach project to encourage and support the sexual health of gay men and the gay community in Phoenix. You’ll find IGNITE’s diverse group of community leaders interacting with people throughout Phoenix’s gay community, distributing safer sex materials, volunteering at free HIV testing events and talking openly about safer sex, HIV and STDs. The project’s goal is to normalize the conversation and eliminate the stigma around safer sex and HIV.
Join the IGNITE Crew
IGNITE is a volunteer-driven community outreach program. Volunteers working in the community must be at least 21 years of age (because of the locations we work in), be energetic and excited to talk about safer sex, condoms and HIV, and be comfortable going into bars, bath houses and adult-oriented businesses to reach out to the target community. Sound like a blast?
Outreach events and locations vary, but are in the Phoenix metro area, and typically occur on nights and weekends. We host testing events, condom distribution, festivals, in-office prep for upcoming events, monthly activities and mixers, chat groups and more! You may have more interest in particular events and opportunities – and that’s totally okay! We plan enough events each month for you to pick and choose the volunteer opportunities that you’re going to enjoy and fit your personality the most!
