Translate materials to increase the accessibility of community programs!
The United Jewish Council of the East Side (UJCES) supports the Lower East Side and wider NYC community with human services and community development programs. While the majority of services are oriented to older adults, UJCES also has programs for families and children. UJCES volunteers are essential to our mission as we serve New Yorkers.
Written Translation Volunteers provide remote support to UJCES staff across the agency. As a volunteer, your tasks will include translating newsletters and flyers from English to Chinese or Spanish.
Bilingual language fluency and excellent written communication skills in Spanish, Cantonese, and/or Mandarin is required.
You can volunteer weekly or monthly, and there will be some sporadic/one-time translation projects. You can volunteer on your own schedule. While one-time support is welcome, an ongoing commitment is strongly encouraged.
You can join compassionate people in helping spread the word about community resources.
Summer 2022: Volunteers planning to only serve during summer are encouraged to serve two shifts weekly, for at least two months, as long as shifts are available.
