Volunteer with HIM on the Vancouver Island!
HIM (Health Initiative for Men) is excited to announce the launch of Vancouver Island HIM Community Connectors!
The goal of this new program is to create a team of self-identified GBQ (gay, bisexual, and queer) Two Spirit and Gender Diverse people across Vancouver Island including the Gulf Islands to assist HIM with implementing a robust online outreach program. This initiative is designed to assist other self-identified GBQ, Two Spirit and Gender Diverse people to locate health care and community resources within their own regions, with a priority on HIV and STI testing, supporting people living with HIV to have access to good health care and community resources, as well as providing information and access to harm reduction supplies.
Who we are looking for:
- A HIM Connector is someone who:
- Identify as Two Spirit, GBQ and gender diverse
- Wants to contribute to building community within their home community
- Fairly tech savvy and knows how to use apps like Grindr and Scruff
