Description of Field Work
Volunteering with NO/AIDS requires awareness and sensitivity to HIV/AIDS related issues and unconditional understanding of strict confidentiality guidelines. Although compassion, concern and caring go a long way, some areas require volunteers with specific skills, time commitments and specialized knowledge.
Externs work on issues involving, but not limited to:
Social Security appeals;
enhance their legal research and writing skills by preparing legal memoranda;
research and brief counsel on legislative issues;
attend AID Services Organization (ASOs); and
observe court hearings involving Social Security and EEOC issues.
Interested students are encouraged to apply.
