Is This the Right Fit for Me?
You know how to make people feel at ease and comfortable, even when it comes to topics that aren't exactly icebreakers, like condom use and safe drug supplies. You have a knack for explaining things and answering questions in a way that is inclusive and engaging. You're up for learning what you can about The Red Project's beneficial programs and tools, and you've got enough of an eye for detail to keep a solid inventory on the supplies.
About Grand Rapids Red Project
Clean Works is The Red Project’s comprehensive harm reduction program.

Clean Works also provides Hepatitis C testing and education, along with accidental drug overdose prevention.
What Others are Saying
“It is the most forward-thinking and fun organization in the area. I believe it is one of the top non-profits that save the lives of those who are typically neglected. It's challenging to hear about some of the clients that do pass. But it is the most fulfilling work I have ever done.”Sarah

What to Expect
Orientations for volunteer are offered every six months, but a one-on-one orientation can take place at the Hall Street office if you’re interested in getting started. The orientation will include a tour, overview of programs, learning about intravenous drug use, and optional additional training on naloxone. Call Nathan to get started.
