Spanish Communications and Social Media Intern


Overview:

Currently, many of our lower-income, vulnerable community members are Spanish-speakers who need access to legal aid. Many legal papers are not in Spanish, nor can any be submitted in Spanish. To interview them and ask about their experience will bring light to this community's stories and needs as ODL continues to advocate for them. Many of our donors do not understand or have the same experiences as our clients. To represent the stories of monolingual Spanish speakers will give our donors greater insight into the cases we do and why our work of addressing poverty through legal aid is important.

Responsibilities:

  • Help interview and translate for monolingual Spanish-speaking clients so that we can highlight and elevate the stories in that community to our donors.

  • Assist with social media and story engagement, making sure that our communications are compelling, culturally relevant, and honoring.

Requirements

  • Experience level: general/undergrad.

  • Spanish proficiency must be high, but does not need to know Spanish legal terminology.

  • Social media proficiency and use is a plus.
