Posted by QuEST – Quaker Experiential Service & Training: Are you a young adult fluent in Spanish? Would you like to serve immigrants by working with a leading legal organization to support one of the most important human rights issues of our time?
The QuEST program in Seattle has two placements open at Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) — the VAWA* Unit Intake Coordinator and the General Intake Coordinator. Both coordinators conduct intakes for potential clients, contributing to NWIRP’s mission to defend and advance the rights of immigrants through direct legal services. (*VAWA — Violence Against Women Act)
As a QuEST Fellow, you’d be a member of a cohort recent college graduates living together in intentional community as they complete a year of full-time service with a local nonprofit, August 2019 to August 2020. The six QuEST Fellows share a house in Seattle’s University District, building a supportive community and practicing simplicity. The program provides room and board; transportation and health care costs; a small personal stipend; a completion award; and regular training, support, mentorship, and opportunities for reflection and spiritual growth.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis with priority given to those received by May 3.
