Volunteer at Human Rights Initiative

HRI is looking for volunteers to help in our office Monday to Friday between 9AM-5PM with administrative office work, answering phones (bilingual Spanish/English only), and assistance with event planning and promotion. We actively recruit volunteer interpreters and translators to provide written translations and in-person interpretation in English for our clients. All documents used as evidence in a client’s petition must be translated into English. HRI utilizes volunteer translators for many languages, including Arabic, Amharic, French, Hindi, Kirundi, Kinyarwanda, Korean, Mandarin, Nepalese, Spanish, Tigrinya, Vietnamese, and more.

If you are interested in volunteering with HRI, please complete HRI’s online Volunteer Application. You can also donate to HRI directly to support our clients.


HRI collects toiletries for our clients. Please contact our Social Services Director to learn our current needs. Thank you!
