West Valley Community Services (WVCS*) is looking for volunteers that are able to comfortably translate for our non-english speaking clients.

Volunteer translators should be able to assist with both verbal and written translations.It is important to have a great group of volunteer translators to ensure the clients are comfortable and knowledgeable when accessing our services.


  • volunteers may be asked to translate verbal communication and English documents into the requested languages and vice versa.
  • We are looking for volunteers who can translate in Farsi, Vietnamese, Spanish, Russian, Arabic,Chinese (Mandarin, Cantonese) and others languages.
Volunteers act as a liaison during Case Managers' meeting with clients. Volunteering in this way is very helpful as it helps our Case Managers connect with a population that can be largely marginalized by their inability to navigate a very complicated, English speaking, social service system.

Time commitment:

This volunteer position is on an "as needed" basis. If approved as a volunteer, you would most likely be contacted via phone or email with about 2 weeks notice of an upcoming appointment to see if you are available to translate.
