Volunteer Engagement

Volunteer Engagement

La Paz offers several opportunities for individuals to utilize their gifts, talents, and time to support our clients and the work we do on behalf of the Latino community.

Volunteers are vital to La Paz's outreach. By building meaningful relationships with Latino residents in the geographical areas where our volunteers live, work, and play, they help to strengthen the collective development of our community.

Most Common Volunteer Jobs

Below is a list of some general volunteer positions we have at La Paz. The frequency of all of these depends on the events occurring throughout the year.

Translators & Interpreters

By far our greates need are volunteers who are bilingual (can understand and speak Spanish at an intermediate to advanced level). These volunteers help to interpret and/or translate at various La Paz and community partner events and workshops. We also utilize volunteers to assist with special translation and intpretation services at local public schools in order to enhance teacher to parent and student relations. 

Special Event Volunteers
We utlize volunteers to help us prepare for, assist at, and break down the special events we host throughout the year in the community. 

Child Care
To help our clients who are involved in one of our worshops or wellness activity, we often need volunteers to help care for their children during a program session. 

Info Booth Volunteers (Tablers)
La Paz is often asked to participate in community events where we set up a booth and share about our mission and the services that we provide. We often ask volunteers to help us by serving as info booth representatives for La Paz. We have done these at job fairs, volunteer fairs, community events (such as the Latin Festival), and at schools.

Strengthening Chattanooga community by community.

Communities grow stronger by actively and intentionally engaging its own residents to care and support one another. As the Latino community continues to grow throughout our region, we feel the best way for them to thrive is by actively guiding them to build relationships with others in their immediate area.
