Partner with Us!

Next Generation Language Access ( NGLA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide high-quality interpreter training to bilingual and/or multilingual high school students so they can pursue a career as a community interpreter upon graduation. In order to fulfill our mission, NGLA seeks to partner with organizations in the following two ways:

1. Training Partners- Organizations that partner with NGLA to provide our NGLA interpreter training program to their students.

2. Practicum Partners- Organizations that partner with NGLA to receive free interpretation services from our students that are completing their practicum hours.

Practicum Partner Partnership

NGLA seeks to partner with organizations in need of interpreters. NGLA provides practicum opportunities in which students who have completed their foundational interpreter training can use their skills in organizations that serve the general community. As such, partnering organizations can access trained interpreters for free as our interpreters complete their practicum hours to earn their certificate.
