Working with AAA was a wonderful experience that helped me develop skills I'm finding useful in my search for a job as a soon-to-be college graduate. During my summers and winters I have been volunteering with the program, helping organize art showings and sales to raise funds, so my organizational skills were put to the test, and my dealings with people at the showings honed my interpersonal skills, making me an overall more effective communicator and a better businessman. Additionally, working with Art Aids Art has introduced me to the unimaginably diverse and intricate world of South African culture, also allowing me to gain valuable information on the plight of AIDS sufferers around the globe and the various means of helping them.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
extremely open and caring, willing to inform anybody willing to listen about how to better help AIDS sufferers.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
