Here at Hestia, hospitality is our priority – and being understanding and heard in your native language is an essential piece of providing safety and comfort to our guests. If you are passionate about helping individuals have a clear voice through translation and interpretation, we need your help. Hestia is seeking volunteer cultural mediators to provide appropriate, correct and sensitive communication between our guests and staff. As a mediator, you will provide guidance to both guests and staff on the best practices for communication relevant to cultural norms. We are seeking volunteers with an advanced level of English or Greek (speaking, reading, and writing) as well as any of the following languages: Arabic, Farsi/Dari, Greek, Kurmanji, Sorani, or Urdu.
We welcome short-term volunteers (2-4 weeks). However we prefer long-term commitments! We need help on weekdays (Mo-Fr). Your schedule will be flexible.
