We seek volunteers to help us with the translation and proofreading of documents in order to reach diverse members of the London community.

These documents are developed for non-English speaking Londoners to easily learn more about trees and ReForest London. These resources would be available to all Londoners on our website or at events. 

We may also reach out to Translator volunteers to attend planting events or community presentations to help with interpreting information to non-English speaking individuals.

Responsibilities

  • Help translate and proofread ReForest London materials into the second language that you know
  • Attend events to help with interpreting to non-English speaking individuals 

Time Commitment 
Varies depending on project.
