About

Can You Speak Spanish?! Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) NC Needs You!

We are looking for volunteers who can make a 6 month to 1 year commitment to supporting our Victim Impact Panels in both Wake County and Mecklenburg County. *Looking specifically for Spanish-speaking volunteers to help facilitate and/or act as an interpreter. You do not need previous interpreter experience. We will train you for this very special and necessary volunteer role. If you speak Spanish and want to build your resume as an interpreter, as well as helping to reduce impaired driving in the state of North Carolina than this a great opportunity for you to get involved with MADD!

What is a Victim Impact Panel?

The purpose of the Victim Impact Panel (VIP) program is to help drunk and drugged driving offenders to recognize and internalize the lasting and long-term effects of substance-impaired driving. The classes seek to create an empathy and understanding of the tragedy, leave a permanent impression that leads to changes in thinking and behavior and prevents future offenses.

At a VIP, victims, survivors and others impacted by substance-impaired driving crashes speak briefly about the crash in which they were injured and/or a loved one was killed or injured. They share a first-person account of how the crash impacts their lives.

They do not blame or judge. They simply tell their stories, describing how their lives and the lives of their families and friends were affected by the crash.

If interested please contact Candice Solis, candice.solis@madd.org or 919-787-6599 Ext 3750 for more details. We would like to get you started as soon as June of 2017.
