As a community-based organisation, our volunteers are an extremely important part of almost everything that we do. We love to see new faces and are hugely appreciative of the way the community supports the work that we do.
VOLUNTEER AT THE BIG GAY OUT
The Ending HIV Big Gay Out is New Zealand's largest and most fabulous Rainbow Community event, and as someone who has shown their support for ending new HIV transmissions in Aotearoa, we would love your support by volunteering at the Big Gay Out.
With your help we can make the 20th Anniversary of the Big Gay Out the biggest, gayest and most fabulous yet! Here’s everything you need to know:
When and where?
Sunday the 10th of February at Coyle Park in Point Chevalier.
On Sunday, we'll need more than 100 volunteers between 6:30am and 7pm. We have three-hour shifts allocated throughout the day, so choose the ones that suit you best!
COME ALONG TO A CONDOM PACKING NIGHT
Each year, Ending HIV distributes around 750,000 free condom and lube packs around New Zealand. This is a vital part of our work, as it ensures guys all over Aotearoa have easy access to protection! Few people realise that they are hand-packed by volunteers every week in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. On an average condom-packing night we might have 20-30 volunteers in each city and they’ll pack between 3,000 and 5,000 condom and lube packs over a couple of hours.
Condom packing night is not just about helping your community. It’s also a great way to meet new people. It’s always a great night, with drinks, nibbles and lots of great conversation!
Usual times are:
Auckland (31 Hargreaves St)
Wednesdays from 4pm to 7pm
Wellington (187 Willis St) Wednesdays from 5pm to 7pm Fridays from 1pm to 3pm
Christchurch (185 Peterborough St) Once a month on Wednesdays
CONSULT FOR ENDING HIV
We are looking for volunteers from all corners of the community to consult with on the development of our Ending HIV resources, videos, and campaigns.

Please note that by submitting the form you consent to be contacted by NZAF and our representatives.
MORE VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES
We are grateful for the generosity of countless volunteers to help us make positive change in our communities. Whether they support us through packing some of the 700,000 free condoms that are distributed to help keep our community safe, helping us share our messages with our community at events such as the Ending HIV Big Gay Out and Pride Parades across the country, or fundraising for us on World AIDS Day, our community is stronger with their support.
