As our Pro Se Clinic has grown, we've been seeing more and more extremely urgent cases. We can serve everyone better if we can see some of these Friends during weekdays in our office instead of once a week at clinic. This is usually fairly short notice - hopefully once a week we'll be able to send out our requests for the full next week.
We're looking for some volunteers who are sometimes available during the day on weekdays and want to hear about and help with these short-notice opportunities.
New volunteers have support of experienced team members and staff as they get involved and learn the ropes.

A note on language fluency:
Lots of people ask whether their language skills are good enough. We really do need full fluency to translate at clinic. Often filling out an asylum application means our Friends have to revisit traumatic experiences in their past. It is absolutely necessary that whoever they are talking to understands everything they are saying and there's no communication barrier caused by less-than-full language fluency.
