The CTA Mentoring Program provides newcomers to the profession an opportunity to interact with and learn from seasoned CTA translators or interpreters. Mentees will be matched with an experienced CTA member who has volunteered to provide guidance and advice throughout the program’s one-year duration period. The program is free and runs from January through December. Participation is limited, so early applications are encouraged.
The next session will begin in January 2018. Applications from CTA members interested in participating in the program as mentees will be accepted beginning August 2017. Mentor applications are accepted year-round. Applicants selected for the program will be notified by December 1st, 2017.
