Meaningful in Many Ways
Become a Volunteer Language Interpreter

Being a volunteer language interpreter for the Fairfax County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court gives people an opportunity to gain the experience needed to become a paid, certified interpreter. It’s an opportunity to learn about the legal process and the court system. Best of all, it’s an opportunity to help families in need.

Volunteer language interpreters are needed to assist court staff and clients. Duties include facilitating communication between clients and court staff, translating court documents, interpreting at some court hearings and helping clients review their court orders. Fluency is required in both English and another language.

A commitment to a weekly four-hour shift during business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) for at least six months is needed. Training is scheduled for Sept. 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Fairfax County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, 4000 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax City. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age. For more information and an application, contact Gwen Robinson at 703-246-2697, TTY 711, or send e-mail to gwen.robinson@fairfaxcounty.gov.
