SDCRID’s Young Professional Interpreters’ Network (YPIN) is a group created by and specifically for newer interpreters - Deaf and hearing - in the beginning phases of their careers.

As interpreters complete their training programs and work towards certification, employment, and further skill enhancement, YPIN provides a supportive network of peers and colleagues. Partnering with community resources, YPIN offers both structured and unstructured opportunities for:

  • Peer mentoring
  • Study groups
  • Workshops
  • Pro bono interpreting opportunities
  • Networking
  • Information about local resources
  • Social events
  • and MORE

If you are an ITP graduate in the first 7 years of your career, join YPIN through our Facebook group:

We also have a Facebook page for everyone interested in supporting YPIN to follow us and stay in touch:

YPIN joins together motivated, emerging interpreters from varied backgrounds to promote advanced interpreting preparation, networking opportunities, and volunteer experiences to benefit the interpreting field and Deaf community, at large.
