Check out legal and medical volunteer opportunities in San Diego

Are you looking for ways to get more involved in volunteering within your local community? Then check out these legal and medical volunteer opportunities right here in San Diego!

Consider volunteering with Champions for Health and Casa Cornelia Law Center, two of the community partners of ATISDA (Association of Translators and Interpreters in the San Diego Area).

Interested in helping in the medical field? Look into Champions for Health, through which some of our ATISDA members have volunteered as medical interpreters. Champions for Health, according to their mission statement, aims to “improve community health and wellness, access to care for all, and support for physicians through engaged volunteerism.”

For more information on volunteer opportunities with Champions for Health, check out their Medical Interpreter Flyer and contact Andrew Gonzalez, Community Wellness and Partnership Manager, at Andrew.Gonzalez@Championsfh.org.

Are you more drawn to the legal field? Then check out Casa Cornelia Law Center, which offers volunteer opportunities in both legal translation and interpretation. I was glad that I could use my translation skills to provide volunteer services to clients of Casa Cornelia Law Center.

For more information on volunteer opportunities with Casa Cornelia Law Center, contact Artemisa Valle, Coordinator, VIT Program, at avalle@casacornelia.org.
