We're looking for Outreach Volunteers in all communities; especially racially, culturally, economically, and linguistically diverse communities!
Brief intro to Found in Translation (more can found on our Organization Page):
We provide a great FREE medical interpreter training program to low-income or homeless bilingual women, so they use one of their biggest assests (language) to reclaim a sense of identity, culture, and achieve stability. We select roughly 40 applicants from a pool of over 450 applications to complete the program. On the way to completion and post-graduation, we provide supportive services to remove any obstacles preventing our interpreters from succeeding.
Here is where you come in:
Because our selection process needs to be comprehensive and selective, we need a strong and large applicant pool. As a Commmunity Outreach Volunteer you will help us promote Found in Translation's program in your community. We will send you a packet of flyers for you to post up wherever you go. It's that easy. We recommend putting them up at landromats, bodegas/local markets, libraries, supermarkets, beauty salons, and any place there could be a large bilingual community.
The flyers will have tear-away pieces at the bottom so they are perfect to have up at eye-level.
We encourage you to remain connected to Found in Translation because we really appreciate our volunteers and want you to see the effects of your contribution! Please send us photos of the places where you put fliers up on our Facebook or Twitter pages. #FoundIt
