Published 4 months ago

Sanctuary for Families is New York’s leading service provider and advocate for survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender violence. Sanctuary works to end gender violence through three key areas: direct service; outreach, education and training; and systems-change advocacy. Every year, Sanctuary empowers thousands of adults and children to move from fear and abuse to safety and stability, transforming lives through a comprehensive range of services.

 

Sanctuary provides survivors with a range of wrap-around services to help them rebuild their lives in the aftermath of abuse. Last year, we served nearly 17,000 individuals through legal and clinical services, economic empowerment support, shelter and programming for children and youth.

 

Sanctuary for Families is currently seeking a volunteer translator who is fluent in written and spoken Dutch and English, especially with writing. This is a great volunteer opportunity for working professionals who cannot make a regular commitment but want the opportunity to give back in a meaningful way. Translation opportunities can be worked on remotely, over the phone, and the hours are flexible. Opportunities for in-person interpreting may be available in the future.

 

Qualifications:

 

·        An understanding and sensitivity to Sanctuary's mission and our clients

·        Fluency in Dutch and English

·        Excellent interpersonal and communication skills

·        Flexible schedule

·        Dependable
