ABOUT CORE INTERPRETERS
Our mentorship program is a six month mentorship with two interpreters placed together by the Match Team. In order to improve our networking and support system, the Match Team will also place each mentorship pair on a team. Each of the teams will have two Coaches assigned to oversee and provide additional support to the mentorship pairs. This safety-net approach to mentoring allows the mentors to rely on the Coaches, while also providing the mentees with an opportunity to converse with more experienced interpreters. Each of the Coaches are selected based on their years of experience, skill, education, training, and knowledge of mentoring.
During each mentorship cycle, we request each mentorship pair complete the following: team interpret a minimum of two pro bono jobs vetted by CORE, meet in person once a month to discuss skill development, virtually connect once a month to check-in, and attend the CORE Kickoff Event as well as the CORE Completion Event. We also host monthly workshops presented by our Coaches for that particular cycle.
Due to our limited capacity, CORE is meant for working sign language interpreters only. We do not accept students who have not graduated from their program yet. Please reach out to us when you have graduated.
