Lifebeat – Music Fights HIV/AIDS is the leading national nonprofit focused on educating kids (13-29) about HIV/AIDS and STD prevention . We mobilize the Music Industry ‘s resources to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and STDs at live music events, and via broadcast, digital, social, and print platforms.
Lifebeat’s Hearts & Voices is seeking musicians to perform for people living with AIDS in healthcare facilities throughout New York City. Lifebeat hosts 3 to 4 H&V events per week at various locations. This is a unique opportunity for artists to volunteer and leave a memorable impact on many who may not otherwise get to see live music. These intimate shows are the highlight of many patients’ days, and are very gratifying for the performers as well.
Hearts & Voices needs volunteers to help set-up performance spaces. This is a wonderful and gratifying opportunity for to work directly with people and see a high quality, intimate live performance.
Local Tour Outreach volunteers staff informational tables at concert venues in New York City. The tables provide information about HIV/AIDS, referrals to local testing sites, program services, and free safe sex and harm reduction materials. This is a great opportunity for volunteers to spread the prevention message in the relaxed, peer-based atmosphere of concert venues.
