Volunteer Orientation for Spanish Speakers

By Erika Zambello

Duke Gardens will hold a volunteer orientation session in Spanish for Spanish-speaking volunteers next month!

The Spanish-speaking population makes up an important and vibrant part of Durham, and we love for our volunteer team to reflect the community that it serves. Would you like to be part of our volunteer family, or do you know someone who would?

As a volunteer, you will not only become more involved in the Gardens, but you will also help share all that Duke Gardens has to offer with others in the community. In addition to working in the Gardens and with adult programs, Spanish-speaking volunteers can work with children's programs offered all year. 

We are looking for people who are willing to share their knowledge and who want to learn and develop interpersonal, leadership and gardening skills. Volunteer hours are flexible; whether you want to come in a few hours a month or a few hours a week, we have a volunteer opportunity that is perfect for you.
In order to become a volunteer at Duke Gardens, you must attend an orientation session. The first volunteer orientation session in Spanish will be held on Feb. 2 from 10 a.m. to noon. The orientation will be at the Doris Duke Center here at Duke Gardens, located at 420 Anderson St. in Durham. At this session, you will learn the benefits and opportunities available for volunteers.

In order to attend this volunteer session, you must be at least 16 years old and conversational in English and Spanish.
