Deadline: Feb 7, 2020
Program Coordinator | Improving Language Access in the Courts
The Program Coordinator will be mainly responsible for coordinating the Improving Language Access in the Courts project which includes working with senior staff and national partners to develop trainings designed for the judiciary to respond to the needs of victims/survivors with limited English proficiency (LEP); the development of translation guidance protocols for court documents/materials; and the development of an iconography resource guide for courthouses. These deliverables require close collaboration with the National Center for State Courts, the Center for Court Innovation, and consultants for the above deliverables and liaising with the Office on Violence Against Women to comply with federal grant protocols, including report-writing and data collection. The Program Coordinator will manage training and technical assistance designed for programs serving LEP victims, courts, law enforcement, attorneys, advocates and government agencies. The Program Coordinator will also be responsible for coordinating and assisting with aspects of API-GBV’s Language Access Program; and to that end, working closely with the Senior Program Manager. Our preference is for this position to be based in our Oakland (or Seattle) office.
