SPANISH SPEAKING VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Help residents overcome language barriers!

Save to Favorites

LINC Housing

Food Bank

LINC Housing is seeking a volunteer who is fluent in SPANISH, and can translate English into SPANISH to help residents overcome the language barrier with property management. Volunteer will help with all communication needs to connect residents with valuable resources and build community. In most cases the volunteer would help with translating, answering questions, distributing flyers, clarifying policies, general inquires, etc.

As a volunteer with LINC you will assist in fulfilling a great need for affordable homes and life-enhancing services to those most vulnerable in our state. Did you know that in California a single worker making minimum wage would have to work over 130 hours per week to afford the average priced two-bedroom apartment for his or her family? Even with two incomes, one can see the challenges that an individual would have working 65 hours per week and still find time to raise a family, care for aging relatives, and contribute in a positive way to their neighborhoods.

By joining our team and providing support to our residents, Volunteer Translators support the mission of LINC Housing to provide low-cost homes and social services to families, seniors and individuals with special needs.

Major responsibilities may include

  • Correspondence and answering phones
  • Plan on-site activities and support community engagement events
  • Translate documents such as flyers, brochures, and surveys
  • Translate conversations with residents
  • Attend community meetings to translate presentations, questions, and responses
  • Speak with residents to clarify policies and answer general inquiries
