ICASA Volunteers

The Role of Volunteers

The success of ICASA 2019 depends heavily on the support of volunteers between 150 and 200 working with ICASA during the week of 2 – 7 December 2019.

Volunteers will help coordinate programme activities, greet visiting delegates, assist with registration, act as guides during the conference, staff various offices and activities, and perform other crucial tasks. Volunteers will receive training and support from ICASA staff and the conference volunteer coordinators.

Volunteers will have free access to conference sessions when not on duty, a lunch each working day and they will also receive a Certificate of Appreciation.

Furthermore, volunteers will have the opportunity to gain international experience at the African largest open scientific conference on HIV/AIDS.

To volunteer you must be at least 18 years old (as of 2nd December 2019), have a good level of English/French and be available for at least three half-day shifts. Volunteers who can commit to more than 7 shifts from 2nd to 7th December, 2019 will be prioritized.

Volunteer registration will be opened on 1st July 2019 and close 31st July 2019

Potential Accommodation

Please see the ICASA 2019 Volunteer Potential Accommodation file for a suggested list of potential accommodation for volunteers at ICASA 2019. The ICASA 2019 Volunteer Department provides this only as an indication and guide; it is not exhaustive and may be subject to change and availability. The ICASA 2019 Volunteer Department unfortunately cannot provide any assistance with accommodation.

Volunteers from Other Countries

Persons from countries other than Rwanda seeking to volunteer at ICASA 2019 will be required to meet Rwanda customs and immigration requirements for visitors.

The conference secretariat is unfortunately not able to offer any financial assistance or an official Letter of Invitation to help with visas. It is the sole responsibility of the volunteer to take care of his/her visa requirements.

Volunteers are responsible for their own accommodation and travel costs.
