Brooklyn Jubilee is providing free legal services to Coney Island residents, primarily concerning FEMA, housing, public benefits, and insurance questions. We need Mandarin, Cantonese, Urdu and Russian interpreters all week long, but primarily on Saturdays. Interpreters will assist attorneys and paralegals conducting new client intake. No legal expertise is required for this volunteer position.
Intake hours are 10-3 on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Intake hours are 2-7 on Thursday. Interpreters would be appreciated for 2-3 hours of the intake session any day of the week, but especially on Saturdays. Please contact Executive Director Sandhya Reju Boyd at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in volunteering.
Brooklyn Jubilee also provides opportunities for legal volunteers, which requires attendance at a training (next one is scheduled for 2/23). A follow-up announcement regarding that opportunity will be forthcoming soon.
