Partnerships Coordinator - Found in Translation

Found in Translation was founded in 2011 in order to create opportunity at the intersection of two social problems: health access disparities and economic inequality across race, gender, and ethnicity. Through education and supportive services, we connect top talent in low-income communities with well-paying jobs in one of the fastest-growing fields in the US. Our Medical Interpreter Certificate training and job placement program supports our two-fold mission:

  • To give low-income bilingual women an opportunity to achieve economic security through the use of their language skills
  •  
  • To unleash bilingual talent into the workforce to fight racial, ethnic, and linguistic disparities in health care

Summary

Partners include clients of our in-house interpreter services, such as schools, clinics, law offices, and municipalities; corporations which support us through volunteering and sponsorship; and employment/career advancement opportunities for our graduates.
