African Community Interpreter Meeting

What is a worker cooperative and how can I become involved?

How will a cooperative help me work as a community interpreter?

What qualifications or certifications should an interpreter have?

Where can I participate in an interpreter training program? 


We invite you to join fellow African community members on Monday, March 14, 2016 at 5:30PM for a lively discussion on community interpretation and worker cooperatives. Community Interpreters help meet critical demands within our community, and we can meet this demand (and more!) through a worker cooperative. 

We strongly encourage our members who speak both English and African languages, particularly Amharic, Tigrinya, Wolof, Kru, Fulani, Soninke, Krio, or Arabic, or who have work experience in the following areas, to attend:

  • Medical
  • Legal
  • Social Work
  • International Aid
  • ESL Instruction
  • Written translation
  • Workers cooperatives

If you are interested in attending this community meeting, be sure to RSVP now!
