Volunteer Interpreter/Translator

Volunteer Interpreters and Translators assist with in-person and remote interpretation and translation needs to provide ongoing support to refugees, asylees, and Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders.  Under the direction of HIAS staff, the primary responsibility of the interpreter/translator volunteer is to facilitate accurate, culturally competent, and sensitive communication between non English speaking clients and HIAS staff. This role will directly impact the lives and legal processes of our clients.  All HIAS interpreters and translators are required to undergo HIAS' Volunteer Interpreter/Translator training once accepted.
