Found in Translation is searching for a few mentors to work closely with low-income bilingual women, who are often homeless or previously homeless, while they complete their medical interpreter training program. Mentors will work with program participants to develop professional skills, expand their network and exposure to other careers, and facilitate workshops. Mentors should be energetic, compassionate, and driven to assist and encourage our aspiring interpreters on their path to economic security.

Mentors have a time commitment of 2 hours of in person and 2 hours of remote support per week. The 2 hours of in-person commitment will be on Thursdays from 7:00-9:00 pm, every week, from September 13, 2018 to December 20, 2018. The remaining 2 hours of remote support per week is flexible and consists mainly of follow up emails and phone calls.

The essential component of this position is a strong commitment to being a constant, reliable, and stable presence throughout the entire medical interpreter training, both in-person and occasionally by phone or email.

Mentors serve not only as friendly guiding hands throughout the training, but also as a buffer against unexpected life challenges within the group.
