Spanish/English Interpreters For Home Visits

RSS XML FeedBackground Active Nov 24, 2006 to Dec 4, 2006

The Center for Multicultural Human Service’s LEAD program for at-risk minority youth is seeking bilingual volunteers (Spanish/English) to interpret during home visits with families and children enrolled in the program. The volunteer schedule is flexible, since home visits can be done anytime after school hours (3pm and afterward) or on weekends. Volunteer interpreters facilitate communication between parents, children and LEAD counselors. This is a great opportunity for individuals who are interested in learning about counseling and social service work.

CMHS has been operating its successful school-based LEAD (Leadership, Education, Achievement, and Diversity) program in Fairfax County public schools since 1992, serving approximately 250 children and adolescents per year. LEAD provides services targeting at-risk students from low-income immigrant and refugee families. Its mission is to remove psychological and other barriers to learning so that children can succeed academically and socially. The goals of the program are to increase academic performance according to each child’s potential, reduce absences, suspensions and disruptive classroom behaviors, and to improve social skills. Native equivalency in Spanish and English is desirable.

Please note that this opportunity requires access to a vehicle.
