A $750 Fast Grant was awarded to the RSVP Volunteer Center of Daviess County IN to assist staff in communicating with those who don’t speak English. The grant provided funding for staff language education. RSVP’s mission is to engage men and women, 55 and better, in meaningful volunteer service that strengthens the well-being of self and community. Executive Director Emily Ramsey says the education will help staff connect better with that audience, which includes those whose native language is not English. “Jennifer Johns, Volunteer Coordinator and I are excited to bridge the gap between us and those of other cultures. Now, anyone who doesn’t speak English and comes to our office must bring a translator. We want to eliminate the need for a translator and help all feel welcome in engaging with us about our services and volunteer opportunities.”
