On The Ground Advocates
On the Ground (OTG) Advocate/s are central to Aldea’s mission. The OTG Advocates work primarily with families detained at the Berks detention facility. The OTG Advocate/s play an integral role in representing detained families as they are often the first point of contact for newly-detained families.
Aldea is always seeking volunteers who are fluent in languages other than English. Aldea has an ever-increasing need of interpreters who speak rare and/or Indigenous languages. While the majority of Aldea’s clients are Spanish-speakers, Aldea represents clients from all over the world. These volunteers often interpret telephonically, meaning volunteers can help in Aldea’s efforts from anywhere in the world!
