NMCDHH: New Mexico Mentoring
New Mexico Mentoring is a unique statewide program to support the professional development of New Mexico signed language interpreters. Qualified, trained mentors (both deaf language models and experienced interpreters) guide mentees through an individualized and structured curriculum designed to address specific skills required for effective interpreting. The mentoring cycle is 16 weeks long and is offered two times a year. The program is designed to match the skills of the mentor with the specific needs of the mentee and is distance-based so that interpreters and mentors throughout New Mexico can easily participate.
