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:

  • estate planning;

  • Social Security appeals;

  • discrimination; and

  • custody.

Externs: 

  • 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.
