ORGANIZATION: Next Generation Language Access

  • 3 people are interested

Next Generation Language Access ( NGLA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide high-quality interpreter training to bilingual high school students. NGLA aims to provide students with a viable career opportunity upon graduation from high school that will both emphasize their inherent bilingual skills and fill the need for professional interpreters in community settings. As such, NGLA aims to train the next generation of professional interpreters that will help decrease nation-wide gaps in equitable language access.


In order to fulfill our mission, NGLA is seeking a volunteer Community Outreach Liasion. This position would be responsible for seeking out and managing relationships with NGLA donors and potential community partners. An example of this may include sending emails to potential community partners locally or nationwide to introduce them to Next Generation Language Access and show them ways in which both organizations can partner together or donate to the organization. This position would also be responsible for managing the NGLA community newsletter. The ideal candidate will have experience in doing community outreach, have strong literacy skills in English as well as Spanish or Portuguese, and have a desire to develop their language abilities in a second language or pursue a language-related career. In summary, the duties of the Community Outreach Liasion would be as follows:

- Manages NGLA's community newsletter
- Finds and cultivates donors
- Reaches out to potential NGLA partners
- Documents volunteer activities
