The NLSC is a U.S. Federal government organization consisting of on-call, multilingual volunteers who are willing to use their language skills and cultural knowledge to help government agencies in their readiness efforts, and communities in times of need. In order to volunteer, you must first join the organization as a Member; there is no membership fee required. Though Members are volunteers to the Corps, if their language skills are needed and they choose to participate, they are compensated by means of a small stipend and per diem in some instances.
U.S. citizenship is required to join. While most members reside in the United States, we encourage applications from U.S. expats around the world.
