If you are looking for programs that operate in your specific state, enter the full state name or the two letter abbreviation (example: “Vermont” or “VT”). Some programs may be local, only providing opportunities within a given state.

Description of the Program

Novin Bridge program is a radical peer mentorship program aimed to support new and seasoned interpreters alike by shifting the traditional mentorship culture to a model that benefits both parties. It is 6 weeks in length, and can be entirely remote. Typically you work with one partner for the duration of the 6 weeks.
