Free Volunteer Interpretation Training
Written by Verena Kwan

APWC is working together with the Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF) to host a free interpreter training for volunteers who want to help immigrant families who have suffered from domestic violence and abuse. Interpreters are crucial to the Asian Pacific Women’s Center and CPAF. Our interpreters act as the liaison for languages APWC staff may not be able to speak. This interpretation training equips bilingual individuals on facilitating professional, cross cultural and accurate communication between staff members and our clients. Interpreters are a huge asset that ensures our organization provides the utmost linguistically culturally appropriate services.

APWC and CPAF will help train volunteer interpreters. We will work around your schedule and only ask for interpretation when you are available. You can choose to interpret by phone or at our shelter. We are also seeking language translation services via email. The volunteer interpreter services we currently need are in: Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese, Korean, Cambodian and Tagalog.
