Volunteering with Acupuncturists Without Borders

Acupuncturists who are interested in volunteering need to meet specific criteria. Volunteers will treat people in a community acupuncture setting in conditions that can be physically and mentally demanding and unusual for those accustomed to a traditional clinical setting.
For those interested in the Military Stress Recovery (formerly Veterans) Project please email veterans@acuwithoutborders.org with your name and contact information, and whether you are interested in starting a clinic or joining an existing clinic as a volunteer.

If you are interested in volunteering with AWB to help with other tasks, such as phone calling, fund-raising, data entry, or to offer other skills, please email info@acuwithoutborders.org

We also highly recommend that future volunteers attend an AWB training and subscribe to AWB's email list at http://acuwithoutborders.org/subscriptions.php

Criteria

  • Licensed Acupuncturist - *note we also accept applications from individuals who are ADS certified or who may be interested in volunteering as support personnel.
  • Experience with community acupuncture and/or experience working in community health settings is preferable
  • If you have attended an AWB training and are an AWB member you will be given first priority
  • For emergency field work: experience with rustic and unknown living conditions and treatment facilities
  • For emergency field work: To drive you must have proof of current auto insurance. This will allow you to drive AWB-provided rental cars as part of your volunteer work.
