My name is Lauren Denny. I am currently working towards an Interpreting degree/license and recently moved to Raeford, North Carolina. I have been involved in American Sign Language education programs for the past 7 years (including high school). I am looking to find any type of volunteer job working with hearing impaired individuals to keep up my skills and to attain as much practice and knowledge as possible. I was wondering if someone could help me find a volunteer job since I am unable to start interpreting until I receive my license. Please let me know of any information you may have for volunteer jobs in the Raeford/Fayetteville, North Carolina area.

Thank you so much for your time.
