This volunteer position at LifeStriders Therapeutic Riding Center assists the barn manager with various horse care and barn chores and basic grounds keeping. Helpers also assist with preparing horses for lessons (grooming, tacking, etc.) and assisting instructors set up arenas or other jobs as needed.
Must be at least 12 years of age and not afraid of horses. Horse experience or work with disabled individuals is not required, but is a plus.
Spanish Speaking Medical Clinic Interpreter - Waukesha
Almost one third of St. Joseph’s clients are Spanish-speaking. It is important that these patients can communicate with the healthcare providers and understand the information that they receive. The interpreter plays a critical role in this process, helping patients fill out financial forms to qualify for services, explaining clinic procedures, and, if qualified, interpreting for the medical staff. Volunteers are needed from 5:00 to 7:30 on Monday and Thursday evenings, 8:00 to 11:00 Wednesday mornings and 12:00 to 2:00 Wednesday afternoons. For individuals who are receiving their Medical Interpreter Certification, this is a great way to gain experience.
