About

Do you speak Chinese, Farsi, or Spanish in addition to English? Do you want to help seniors in your community learn about important subjects that can have a positive impact on their lives? Volunteer as an interpreter during activity time at Columbia Park Manor in Pittsburg!

Interpreters are needed beginning in June once per week to provide interpretation for five nutrition and cooking classes taking place at Columbia Park Manor, an affordable housing site for seniors in Pittsburg. The volunteer will NOT be responsible for teaching the class or providing materials, but will be needed for interpreting for the course instructor, as well as interpreting questions that students in the course may have for the instructor. A Chinese interpreter is the most urgent need for this course. The interpreter does not need to be an expert in cooking or nutrition, but a knowledge of general cooking or nutrition terms would be helpful. Please apply to be a volunteer interpreter today!
