Opportunities to Contribute
Using your skills to benefit others not only showcases your abilities, but helps you build community and contribute to the advancement of the profession as a whole.
Experienced translators and interpreters are always welcome to apply as mentors in ATA’s volunteer-run Mentoring Program. The program entails a year-long self-organized mentoring relationship between a mentor and a mentee.
Prepare the next generation of translators and interpreters! ATA’s School Outreach Program provides resources for contacting local schools and sharing your profession with students of any age.
Get Involved Locally
ATA Chapters and Affiliates serve translators and interpreters at the local level by providing events, workshops, and support in your community. They represent microcosms of the larger ATA community. While individual in their identities, Chapters and Affiliates subscribe to the same mission, goals, ethics, and professional standards as ATA.
