We called for student volunteers last week: on Friday about 24 students packed into a classroom and signed up for a variety of roles (more are signing up still). The project offers work experience opportunities for translation and interpreting, media/communications and PR, media production, events management, and more. It’s a great chance to bridge the gap between the university and the city. And to chip away at cultural barriers. And meet a lot of extraordinary people.
Between them, so far, the volunteers speak 19 languages.
