We aim to make the city more accessible to newcomers by assisting those in their first year of arrival – or with language level 4 and below – and advocate for their settlement into the greater Saint John community. Within our staff and volunteer team, we interpret:
With 60+ hours of interpretation on a weekly basis, the topics our interpreters cover include meetings with settlement counsellors, parent-teacher conferences, dental and optical appointments, banking appointments, and limited health and Service NB/Canada appointments.
The Interpretation Team is always in high demand, and always in need of volunteers to help support their work. As a volunteer interpreter, you could be the link in communication for newcomers in Saint John – not only would you help to ensure a newcomer is heard and understands others clearly, you will have the opportunity to meet new people and experience firsthand the difference our team at Newcomer Connections can make.
We encourage anyone to volunteer as an interpreter, and we accept all languages! For more information on the role or to submit an application visit our website, or write us at email@example.com.
