The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
A growing number of Mandarin Chinese-speaking women living in Brooklyn have a desire to learn English. Struggling to communicate in the native language where they live makes it extremely difficult to achieve healthy independence and greatly limits their ability to navigate supportive services and seek job opportunities. If you are fluent in both languages and want to empower women to achieve freedom from the isolation caused by communicational barriers, please email your interest and availability to Jennifer Groff, Community Engagement Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
