"To acquire knowledge one must study. To acquire wisdom one must observe."  - Marilyn Vos Savant


Although PCRID does not create mentor-mentee partner permanency, we create collaborative opportunities together with our community.


  • We embrace the mentor and mentee in all of us as we commit to foster opportunities to both learn and teach.
  • We strive to acknowledge the fluidity of enrichment within the person, the profession, and the community, as it is essential.
  • We recognize mentorship has an integral part of the interpreting profession that can be used as a development tool at any point in an individual’s career.
  • We acknowledge mentorship does not exist in isolation, and values internal and external collaboration, serving as a centralized source of information.
  • We understand that mentorship can materialize in many different ways using a variety of models.
  • We will promote unique opportunities that advance mentoring in a variety of formats for a diverse audience.
