Do you have a few hours to spend interacting with young mothers and their babies? Or perhaps you would rather help us behind the scenes with translation of simple materials?

The mission of Friends of NYC Nurse-Family Partnership is to improve the lives of babies and their mothers by providing enhanced benefits for the nationally renowned Nurse-Family Partnership. NFP sends registered nurses to make regular visits to first-time, low-income mothers from the time the mothers are pregnant until their babies are 2. Friends of NYC NFP is developing and leading LEAP ( Learn, Eat, and Play) programs which help the mothers meet and socialize with other young moms, while learning about nutrition, finance, making toys out of household objects, and much more.

Do you have some time to translate short, simple booklets from English to Spanish or English to French Creole? These booklets are used during the LEAP sessions and then taken home by the mothers.

We’re also looking for Bilingual English-Spanish volunteers to attend sessions with the mothers and babies and do translation when necessary.

If you are interested , please contact us. Be sure to send your phone number.
