Interpreter Internships

At KCD, we offer interpreter internships for students majoring in American Sign Language interpreting. Internships, often required by Interpreter Training Programs (ITPs), offer students the opportunity for skill building, mentoring, training, networking, and real world experience. Our internship program is a great way to develop your skills while being mentored by working community interpreters.
