LOVEYOURSELF IMPETUS -- An Army of Lovers

  
GOT LOVE?
So, you know you’ve got talent and mad skills, but you want to do more than just your 8-to-5. Maybe there are all these creative ideas that you're dying to unleash. Or maybe you’ve just got all this love inside of you that you want to share, but you don’t know where, or how, or whom to.

Find your impetus. LoveYourself is always looking for committed volunteers who believe in our vision of a self-loving, healthy, and HIV/STI-free Philippines. If you have the time, energy, and team spirit to make a difference in our community, read on.


WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

COMMUNICATIONS
Software engineers / programmers. Technology is the tool that enables us to touch thousands of MSMs everywhere. And everyday, we're working on cutting-edge projects that can revolutionize the advocacy. If you’ve got IT chops, we want you! 
Visual artists / graphic designers. We make things look sexy. If you’ve got an eye for layouts and you rock at Photoshop, you’ll definitely want to join us. Get your best creative work out there and make a difference! 

EVENTS MANAGEMENT
Events are our way of physically engaging and inviting people into our advocacy. 
No hard and fast skills required here: we just need fun and energetic people who enjoy conceptualizing and organizing events. It’d be neat if you’ve had experience leading in promotions, sponsorships, visual design, or logistics, but it’s no biggie if you don’t. Just be dynamic, personable, and cooperative (and hopefully able-bodied!), and we’ll take care of the rest.

RESEARCH AND EVALUATION
Research and evaluation is how we continuously upgrade the LoveYourself experience.
Love a challenge? We're looking for people with a background in technical writing, qualitative/quantitative analysis, measurement and evaluation, or research design. Whether it's working with the different committees to fine-tune their operations, or leading ground-breaking research to discover the things that matter most to our clients, you'll play a significant role in making sure that LoveYourself continues to deliver an outstanding experience to the community.

COUNSELING & EDUCATION
Counseling and Education is at the heart of what we do.  
Whether you see yourself in the descriptions above or not, you may also believe you have the empathy, open-mindedness, and people skills to show our community some real love.  We are definitely looking for people to be trained as peer counselors and educators  frontliners to the organization's key objective: HIV awareness, education, counseling and testing.

WHY IMPETUS?
An "impetus" is something that incites  a stimulus. If you've read this far, you've probably been looking for an impetus yourself: a cause that has meaning, a space for your ideas to play, a community where you belong.

LoveYourself offers an opportunity to be part of a worthwhile movement, where volunteers unite their diverse talents behind the purpose of promoting HIV awareness, counseling and education. It’s no secret that we're growing: with more and more people starting to love themselves, we’re putting up a new community center to meet the skyrocketing demand for our HIV testing and counseling services. As we scale up to take on the country’s burgeoning HIV epidemic, we need an army of Lovers—our name for committed, talented people like yourself—who find meaning in what we do, and are ready to help us make a difference.


READY TO FIND YOUR IMPETUS?
Sign up to volunteer on our website: go.LoveYourself.ph/volunteer. Our next batch of volunteers will be invited to an orientation on August 31, 2013 (Saturday). Block the date, and we'll see you there!
