Small Bullet 1 Spanish-Speaking Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to help interpret for Spanish-speaking families during their WIC/MCH appointments and for translation of written materials.  Phone calls and walk-ins are a daily occurrence too, so it is important to have volunteers available in clinic at all times.  We are asking for a 2 - 3 hour shift per week.  There are approximately 20 shifts per week and multiple shifts are allowed.  The volunteer is provided with an incentive. 

Volunteers must provide a reference that can verify their Spanish-speaking abilities.  If interested please call Erica Wagner at (319) 688-5891.
