Part-Time Paid Opportunity: Somali Interpreter

submitted by

Community Aid Network (CANMN) is a volunteer-led mutual aid site located in Minneapolis, MN. We work to build mutual aid bonds with our neighbors, organize volunteers and redistribute resources to ensure everyone has the means for dignified survival.

CANMN is looking for a Somali interpreter to provide assistance during community distribution days. Main duties would include taking food and supply orders and answering questions related to distribution. There is also a potential future need for written translation.

This is a part-time PAID position to start immediately and run through the end of August (with the potential for future work). Hours are flexible. Distribution days are Mondays and Wednesdays, 12 – 4pm, and are divided into two shifts each day (11:30am – 2pm and 2 – 4:30pm). Physical demands for this position include standing for sustained periods of time and some moderate lifting (i.e. helping to load food orders into vehicles).

CANMN operates out of the Children’s Theatre Company/Minneapolis Institute of Art at 2400 3rd Ave. in Minneapolis.

We follow all COVID-19 safety regulations, as defined by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
