DSC Mentor Program/On-Site Mentoring
Deaf Services Interpreting Department has developed this program for ALL interpreters of ALL levels of skill to establish a positive support system in our profession.
This is NOT limited to individuals working only under DSC. We welcome individuals from various organizations to join us in these discussions. EVERYONE’S INPUT IS VALUABLE! Whether you are a new student starting practicum, a new graduate, a new interpreter, an interpreter with 2 – 5 years of experience, or with 6 – 25 years, we welcome you to this group/ interpreting field as a whole.
As for our ON-SITE Mentoring, we offer this to our new graduates as a transition period, new interpreters that need a boost in certain areas, and anyone needing a little extra support in the interpreting field.
We place new graduates, or new interpreters (mentees) on an assignment as their own, with an experienced interpreter (mentor) simply there as a backup support. The goal is to give the mentee on the job independence and confidence knowing that they have someone there for support. This not a paid program when you go on-site, but can be scheduled by request.
