“I passionately believe that equitable, accessible and affordable medications should be a right to everyone. Not a luxury. Knowing antiretroviral medications are readily available to the people of these communities helps me believe that maybe, just maybe, a world free of HIV/AIDS is possible. - Brittany Jonap, CMMB Haiti

Becoming a Volunteer
Start by completing the online application. CMMB staff will review your application and schedule a personal interview if your background and skill set meet our needs. If accepted, all international volunteers also participate in a 3-day pre-departure orientation in New York City.
Benefits of Volunteering
Each international volunteer who serves 6 months or longer in the field receives a round-trip ticket to their placement site, housing, a monthly stipend, insurance coverage, storytelling and fundraising training, and the opportunity to contribute to vital community development initiatives for under-served populations while building a longstanding legacy for the community.
A financial contribution is required. In addition to covering all travel costs, all volunteers contribute or raise $5,000 to help offset the cost of their trip; a minimum of $3,500 prior to departure and the remaining $1,500 can be raised while in the field.
Domestic (e.g. New York City internships) volunteers do not have to meet the international age, licensure, or financial contribution requirements, and do not receive program benefits outlined above. We encourage New York based undergraduate and graduate students to apply for these domestic opportunities.
