In-Person or Telephonic Volunteer Spanish-English Interpreter/Translator (Baltimore, MD)

Department: Legal Services
Location: Baltimore, MD

Background:

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) is an innovative partnership among the Microsoft Corporation, Angelina Jolie and other interested philanthropists, law firms and corporate supporters. As the leading national organization that works to ensure that no refugee or immigrant child faces immigration court alone, KIND is dedicated to providing pro bono representation as well as positive systemic change in both law and policy to improve the protection of unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children. KIND also assists children who are returning to their home countries through deportation or voluntary departure to do so safely and to reintegrate into their home communities. In addition, we work to ensure the voices of these children are heard and we help them become their own advocates. Launched in fall 2008, KIND is headquartered in Washington, DC and has 10 field offices across the United States. 

About the opportunity: KINDís Baltimore field office is seeking volunteer bilingual Spanish/English interpreters and translators to assist pro bono attorneys in providing legal representation to unaccompanied children.

Fluency in Spanish and English is required. Volunteers state their own availability and agree to volunteer assignments on a case-by-case basis. Interpretation can take place in person or telephonically depending on the availability of the interpreter.

While Baltimore-based professional interpreters are preferred, volunteers do not need to be professionally trained or reside in Maryland. Experience with children or victims of trauma is preferred, though not required.

In-person interpretation generally takes place at courts and the offices of pro bono attorneys throughout Baltimore. Non-local volunteers may provide telephonic interpretation and translation services.

Volunteers must pass a criminal background check and sign a confidentiality agreement.

This is an unpaid volunteer opportunity. We regretfully are unable to reimburse volunteers for travel or other expenses accrued during volunteering.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Thank you for your interest and generosity!
