What Types of Translating Opportunities are Offered to Teens?

I'd like to take advantage of the fact that I'm bilingual to volunteer virtually during the pandemic, but most of the opportunities I come across are specifically for people over the age of 18.

Hi Amanda,

I found a few opportunities on VolunteerMatch that do not have an age requirement. For example:
* https://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp3232311.jsp
* https://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp3299449.jsp
* https://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp3340758.jsp

I hope you can use VolunteerMatch or similar sites to find ways to give back to the community. I think it's wonderful that you're looking to help. :)


Thank you! Amanda K.

You're welcome! :) Dexter Arver

Hi Amanda!

You might consider reaching out to senior homes or senior centers to see if they have any bilingual patients who would like someone friendly to chat with or exchange letters with. Many seniors are lonely, especially during COVID-19 while traveling and visitation might be limited. It may feel awkward to call and reach out but many caregivers would love to have extra folks interacting with the seniors who may not get a lot of social interaction. Even 30 min phone calls every now and then or the occasional letter with a pen pal would definitely brighten their day! Just an idea, I hope you're able to find something, it's great you want to use your language skills to give back! Good luck!

That's a great idea, thank you! I will look into that. Amanda K.
