of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf
1. Student volunteers will be placed with a PCRID committee or board member (i.e. PCRID representatives). The intention is to create a teaching/ learning relationship between each student volunteer and PCRID representative.
2. PCRID Representatives will communicate with student volunteers, and student volunteers will participate by supporting PCRID representatives in their projects and initiatives.
3. Students will also volunteer on-site in the role of Conference Support Staff during the weekend of the conference, under the coordination of the Support Staff Coordinator.
PCRID's goal in working with students taking part in an interpreter program is to connect, support, and providing a learning opportunity for interpreting students, developing the future leaders of our field, as well as to benefit from student volunteer support. The goal of the Student and the student's educational institute is to provide service in the Deaf and interpreting communities, while getting a measurable learning/teaching experience.
Context is Decisive
