- The IRC is looking for volunteers to be on-call interpretors by phone or in-person. The volunteers will be trained before working with clients. The program needs assistance with interpreting clients in languages such as Farsi, Dari, Arabic, Swahili, French, Oromo, Tigrinya, Kunama Burmese, Hindi, Nepali, Pashtu, and Kinyarwanda. Interpreting is needed during office hours from 8:30 am-4:30 pm.
- The IRC is also seeking on-call drivers for clients, mostly for doctors' visits. Besides driving, there is also an aspect to this position that involves teaching clients public transportation. This would include helping clients to appointments while teaching them how to use public systems like MARTA.
- Do you have a truck or large vehicle that would like to volunteer with you? The IRC in Atlanta is frequently offered large donations that require pickups. Work with the Donations Coordinator and Logistics Department in picking up and delivering donations from donors and to clients. On-call donations volunteering is also a great place for experienced yard sale pickers and list-serve sleuths.
