Your time is one of the most valuable gifts that you can give us. Spend a little time or a lot with us. Every little bit helps. We can use your help a couple of hours a month or a couple of hours a day.

Here’s what some former FIGHT interns and volunteers have to say about their experience

“I am very thankful for the time I was able to spend at FIGHT and often think of the people I met along the way. I appreciate the diversity of the environment and nothing could change the outlook that lends a person. Thank you for having me for the semester and letting me soak it up. This would be a worthwhile internship for anyone.”

“I was never sitting around with nothing to do and I always felt like the interns’ work was noticed and appreciated.”

“I want to work in a non-profit focused on women’s issues or on HIV/AIDS. This internship allowed me to focus on both of those things simultaneously. I feel like this was such an educational experience for me.”

“I enjoyed the people at FIGHT. Naturally, each person was unique in their own way and each person provided an enriching experience for me, one which I know I could not have gotten anywhere else.”
