Esperanza Event

Esperanza seeks talented and passionate volunteers to assist with interpretation between Spanish and English for the Direct Representation and Community Education Programs. Esperanza represents vulnerable immigrants facing deportation from the US. They desperately need your help defending themselves and establishing a legal right to remain in the US.

Esperanza interpreters will work telephonically and/or virtually alongside staff attorneys to interpret for non-Spanish speaking attorneys during client meetings, appointments, practice interviews and more. Esperanza also requires help translating documents between English to Spanish. There are opportunities to volunteer weekly and at various times.

Volunteers will be guided through the process by experienced staff. No prior experience is necessary. Volunteering as an interpreter is guaranteed to be a hugely rewarding experience!

You will:

  • help an indigent immigrant at risk of deportation
  • advance social justice
  • develop interpretation/translation skills
  • learn about immigration law
  • connect to immigrant rights advocates

To apply, please send a resume and cover letter to Ingrid Salazar at isalazar@ccharities.org. Please put "Spanish Interpreter" in the subject line.
