FOREIGN LANGUAGE SKILLS on the part of volunteers can help immigrant females overcome the ravages of rape, human trafficking, domestic abuse, and other forms of violence. If you are fluent in French, Thai, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Hindi, or Spanish, consider serving as an interpreter for women or girls at meetings with pro bono attorneys or at intake processing sessions at agencies in Montgomery County. You'll have a variety of times and locations from which to choose.
RAISE A PUPPY for an organization that assigns guide dogs to visually impaired persons. In-depth training will equip you to care for and teach a puppy who will eventually be a loyal companion to someone in need of the dog's services. This assignment calls for responsible volunteers willing to integrate the dog thoroughly into their family lives and daily routines. The duration of commitment varies but is typically in the range of 12 to 18 months.
OPEN NEW VISTAS for high school students in Montgomery County by becoming a representative for an international student exchange program. Duties will include making presentations at a local school, answering inquiries from students and their families, and screening youngsters who apply to study abroad. The assignment requires Internet access and a commitment of about five hours a month.
DELIVER HOT LUNCHES to elderly shut-ins in east Montgomery County. You'll pick up the meals at a social service agency's New Caney location and take them to homes of persons in that general vicinity. Volunteers typically commit to making deliveries one weekday per week but more flexible assignments are also available. For some of the persons served, visits from "Meals on Wheels" volunteers are the only human contact they have all week long.
