We are always looking for talented and committed individuals to join our team!
Depending on availability, Language Support Volunteers will work with the Immigration Legal Services or the Social Services teams to assist in interpretation by phone or in person, and/or translation of documents. Due to the nature of this work, volunteers must be fluent or highly proficient in English and another language. Individuals with any language backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Languages that are especially in high demand are Spanish, Tagalog, Mandarin, modern Mayan languages, and many African languages.
Language Support Volunteers may assist Tahirih staff in client meetings, preparation of immigration applications, attending Immigration Court proceedings, at interviews with USCIS, intake assessments, other mental health evaluations, and meetings with caseworkers. Volunteers are unpaid, but volunteers currently in school may be able to receive credit for working at Tahirih.
Fluency or a high level of proficiency in English and another language is required. Since volunteers are unpaid, work authorization is not required.
A written cover letter stating your interest and a resume highlighting language skills will be accepted but is not required.
To apply for this volunteer position, please email our office administrator Erika Alvarez at SFBayArea@tahirih.org
