Crossing Borders: Volunteer Translators Bridging The Language Barrier in Cache Valley Public Schools

At Woodruff Elementary School, more than 60 families require a Spanish translator at parent-teacher conferences. A parent liaison used to do all of them until she discovered a translation club at Utah State University. Three years ago, she partnered with Aggie Translators, which provides the elementary school and other local schools with dozens of free translators. 

The UPR Original Series "Crossing Borders" is a yearlong storytelling project between UPR and the USU Office of Global Engagement - providing services for international students and scholars; and facilitating study abroad opportunities for students and faculty. Details found here.
