Outside In is looking for volunteers to help operate the Syringe Exchange program and to engage in discussion with participants about their health.

Outside In's Syringe Exchange is dedicated to harm reduction and better health for all its clients. Providing sterile needles dramatically reduces the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C. The program also offers rapid testing, overdose prevention, educational information, and referrals to other healthcare services and treatment options.

Outside In's mission is to support homeless youth and other marginalized people as they move towards improved health and self-sufficiency.

Volunteer shifts are once a week, Monday-Friday.
