Volunteer Opportunities

What to Expect as an APHF Team Member

  • Dedicated 10 hours/month (minimum), but overall a year commitment. Our outreaches are not based on a routine schedule, but rather how many venues we are able to secure for the month.

  • Remain actively involved in community outreaches
  • Logistics, setup of events, data collection, data, processing, and event follow up

If there are conflicts that arise, you should immediately report it to a volunteer coordinator and it will be logged for our records.
