Interested in Volunteering?

AIDS Walk Austin is currently looking for volunteers for AIDS Walk Austin 2018. We love working with community groups, organizations, corporate responsibility teams, and individuals. Volunteers are an integral part of the walk. Each year, we have nearly 200 volunteers assist to make the Walk a safe and fun event for the entire community. This year there have been some slight changes regarding the needs of the event because for the first time ever AIDS Walk Austin is partnering with the Farmer's Market and moving the Walk to a Saturday. If you would like to support this wonderful cause and/or are interested in more information please to register as a volunteer by contacting Joseph Breck at joseph.breck@asaustin.org. Individuals as a part of volunteer groups should coordinate their shift among themselves before registering. All volunteers and/or group members must register individually.
