18 Apr Celebrating Our “Ambassadors in Orange” for National Volunteer Week!

It’s hard to imagine how Get Tested Coachella Valley would fulfill its mission to end the spread of HIV in the Coachella Valley without our dedicated corps of volunteers.

This week, we join in unison with organizations across the U.S., to celebrate National Volunteer Week and the contributions of our “Ambassadors in Orange”. Get Tested Coachella Valley volunteers are the heart and soul of our campaign–dedicating their time and talents to help educate our community about HIV testing and resources, provide free HIV testing and counseling, and supporting the GTCV mission to end the spread of HIV in the Coachella Valley.

“Each day, humble people of every background and belief come together to fulfill the timeless responsibility we have as Americans:  to accept certain obligations to one another.  People of all ages can volunteer, and anyone can, through the smallest of acts, do their part to improve the lives of others. This week, we celebrate the selfless individuals around our country who channel their civic virtues through volunteerism, and we encourage more people to make service an integral part of their lives.”  Presidential Proclamation — National Volunteer Week, 2016

To our volunteer team, we say thank you and we appreciate your commitment to making the Coachella Valley a stronger and healthier place. We couldn’t do it without you.
