Step Forward. Step Up. Volunteer Today!

Join Love Yourself - Batch Ascend

What do you do on your free time? Any hobby? Do you like to party? Travel maybe? Make friends? Enjoy life? 

This is our upward challenge -- VOLUNTEER, and still do everything else you enjoy doing. 

If you're like us, you've probably been thinking of volunteering for some time now. You aren't alone. Many of us were drawn into this advocacy because we knew we needed to help in some way, we knew we could do something different, to contribute something relevant and significant for the community. And when we became part of LoveYourself, when we dared to step forward with action -- that allowed us to do amazing things.

LoveYourself is a growing community of passionate, committed volunteers who are taking on the issues that matter to people like us: self-worth, being MSM, and the escalating situation of HIV in the community. Our volunteers have one thing in common: they are all buoyed up by their love to reach out and help.

At LoveYourself, you are welcome to create positive change however you can. Whether it's through being an HIV counselor and helping people through the experience of getting tested, or in another way, there's opportunity for all of us to unite our diverse talents behind our common mission of embracing and nurturing our self-worth, inspiring others to do the same, and creating ripples of positive change in the community.

Do you think you could step forward and step up? Are you committed to helping our community, while enjoying its fun camaraderie, and warmth?

LoveYourself has always been a 100% volunteer-led organization. We are what we are today because of the passion that inspired our volunteers. And while we've grown in numbers, we've still kept that fire -- that spirit that makes us who we are -- alive. Today, we're looking for talented volunteers who have that fire in them: who are passionate about our purpose and can commit time, pour energy and invest love into our advocacy.

Want to be a part of LoveYourself? Sign up to volunteer on our website: and block the 5th of April, 2014 (Saturday) for the LoveYourself Ascend Batch Orientation. We'll be in touch with sign-ups about the details.
