Bay Area Legal Aid: Interpreter
Would you like to interpret for a good cause? Do what you are good at and help others at the same time? BayLegal is currently looking for individuals who speak another language and who are willing to volunteer their time to help with interpretation and translation for BayLegal staff. You would interpret for our cases (housing, domestic violence, immigration and more) in-person by phone. Interpreters are needed on an on-call basis. ALL languages are needed! Please email email@example.com or call (510) 250-5235 for more information.
Working with Bolivian Express involves living in the BX House alongside a group of volunteers from around the world. The experience involves learning about journalism and Bolivian culture in an immersive environment. The programme fee covers 40 hours of tuition per month (covering Spanish, journalism, and photography), as well as your accommodation, lunch, internet access, phone, airport pickup, pre-trip guidance and a press pass during your stay. As part of the learning experience you will intern within the organisation to produce a monthly magazine which is distributed for free across Bolivia. You will therefore be volunteering as part of a cultural project which aims to foster ties between Bolivia and the English-speaking world by producing news and content from an under-reported region. Applications are ongoing, however, there are only seven places per month, so the earlier you apply the better chance of getting a place in your preferred time period.

The Peace Corps has international volunteer programs suited to students of every college and major at UC Berkeley, and values the unique experiences that students gain through coursework, school clubs and organizations, creative outlets, and volunteering around the community. The Peace Corps is a great opportunity for UC Berkeley graduates to travel the world, gain leadership skills and experience, and to stand out from other applicants when applying to graduate or medical schools.
The Peace Corps application process starts with an online application which includes a resume, essay and reference contact information. Strong applicants will be interviewed by a Peace Corps staff member, and will undergo legal and medical clearances. We suggest beginning the process about 7-9 months before you would like to depart for Peace Corps service. The Openings page on the Peace Corps website provides detailed information on application deadlines and departure dates.
