It was really great being in a different environment, not knowing my fellow volunteers or the people we were meeting. It took me out of my comfort zone and made me open more when I came back to the States.
AAH offers many hands-on opportunities for our supporters to get involved with our work. We hold several annual events — a picnic and a gala, among them — and lead trips to Uganda for both teens and adults each summer. We also have ongoing volunteer and internship opportunities, both here and in Uganda. See below for how you can become more involved beyond donations and sponsorships.
