Compass Center is seeking a Spanish-speaking volunteer advocate to provide legal advocacy and assistance to victims of domestic violence involved in the criminal and/or civil court systems.
Assist survivors of domestic and interpersonal violence by responding to calls on our 24-hour hotline and meet with survivors in our office to provide crisis intervention, emotional support, court advocacy and referrals to community resources.
I&R Volunteers welcome our clients, assess their needs and goals, and connect them to Compass Center services and community resources accordingly.
Interpret between Advocates and clients over the hotline or in-person, and/or translate written materials, including Compass Center documents, educational information, court-related documents, and client-related documents. A 10-hour training and sample translation are required.
Community Educators are the face of Compass Center and play an integral role in Compass Center’s success in prevention work. Community educators facilitate presentations, workshops, and trainings that educate the community about domestic violence and Compass Center services.
