Volunteers

Victims of domestic and sexual violence find safety and security at FRIENDS. While staying in our shelter or meeting with an advocate for 1:1 sessions, we want to make sure all of our clients receive the best care possible. Language barriers between staff and clients can make a scary or traumatizing time even scarier for the client.

If you can help by signing on to be an interpreter with us, the difference you make will be immeasurable!

DUTIES:

  • Attend client/staff sessions in-person at FRIENDS
  • Interpret conversations between FRIENDS staff and clients
  • Maintain confidentiality of clients and staff
  • Translate documents as able

Qualifications:

  • Motivated to help others
  • Preferred: knowledge of Domestic and Sexual Violence Trauma, but will train as necessary
  • Qualified or certified interpreters - our biggest current need is for Spanish speaking interpreters, but we are hoping to expand our pool of volunteers to be as inclusive as possible.
  • ATA Certified
