Now Accepting Applications for Language Access Fellowship Class of 2017!
Application deadline: October 17, 2016. Program start date: February, 2017
Watch our 60-second pitch at MassChallenge to learn about how we create opportunity at the intersection of two social problems.
Our Interpreter Services program provides affordable, high-quality language access services for people with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) in medical, legal, and community settings; creates well-paying job opportunities for our Language Access Fellows; and generates revenue that supports the next class of Language Access Fellows and Found in Translation's long-term sustainability.
Through our Language Access Fellowship program, we provide Medical Interpreter Certificate training, job placement, and ongoing career development to low-income bilingual women. With an Ivy League admissions rate and over 100 hours of training, our high support/high expectations model prepares exceptional interpreters. The program is free-of-charge; includes common-sense supports such as on-site childcare, transportation assistance and mentoring; and leads directly to well-paying jobs.
Thank you for supporting our work!
