Interpreter Training

ALP’s Annual Interpreter Training is a part of a larger vision of Language Justice in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans and Gender Non-Conforming (LGBTSTGNC) Immigrant of Color communities.  This Interpreter Training seeks to provide opportunities for LGBTSTGNC Immigrants of Color who are already informal community interpreters to:  

  • gain greater skills in interpretation.
  • learn resources and strategies to use interpretation to generate income.
  • better understand how to make our community spaces more accessible.
  • share knowledge about health, social and community resources.
  • share resources on translating health, sexuality and gender issues.
