Description

East Central Ministries (ECM) is a holistic, inclusive, faith-based community development organization located in Albuquerque's International District. Our goal is to forge a long-term relationship with our neighborhood and, through education, leadership development, social enterprise, community-building, and responding to community-identified needs, to partner the community to overcome issues of poverty, racism, and marginalization. One Hope Centro de Vida is a holistic community-driven health center designed to create consistent, affordable access to basic healthcare and wellness. We are seeking volunteers to assist during our Tuesday dental clinics with interpretation for Spanish-speaking patients, as well as to assist the dentist with tasks such as sterilizing tools, prepping patient trays, cleaning the exam stations between patients. Volunteers must have advanced fluency in Spanish. They do not need a medical or dental background. The dental clinics run from 9 to 4 on Tuesdays, but volunteers who can make a weekly commitment to a minimum shift of 2 hours during that time are encouraged to apply. If you are interested in this position, please e-mail Christy at eastcentralministries@gmail.com to request an application, or download and fill one out here.
