When We Need You
From 14/08/2008 onwards
Gay Men's Health would welcome applications from gay and bisexual men who would like to join our team of Peer Educators. Peer Educators play a vital role in the work carried out by Gay Men's Health. Peer Educators visit various venues within the Glasgow commercial Gay scene and promote campaigns and events/groups. Volunteers who have become involved in Gay Men's Health have said that they have gained a greater awareness of the gay community, got involved with many different types of work and picked up several new skills. HOW DO I GET INVOLVED? You should contact Catherine at GMH for an informal chat using the contact details on the right/select the APPLY! button. If you do not receive a response within 3 working days please contact the Volunteer Centre Glasgow. It generally takes 2-6 days after you contact us to get you started volunteering.
