Boston Housing Authority Volunteer Interpreters Program
The Boston Housing Authority (BHA), the largest public housing authority in New England and whose mission is to provide affordable housing, is looking for student volunteers to interpret for the BHA residents and housing applicants. Ideal candidates are individuals who are energetic, patient and proficient in English and one of the following languages: Albanian, Arabic, Cape Verdean, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Italian, Khmer, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, Vietnamese. It is a volunteer (no pay) position, but it will be a great opportunity to work on your language and interpretation skills, and to learn about housing policies that impact low and moder-ate income, elderly, and disabled persons. Volunteer interpreters will receive training and serve on an on-call basis (about 10 hours a month). If you are interested in becoming a volunteer interpreter, please contact:
