We are excited to announce The KAI-RID Deaf Mentor Program. The duration of the pilot program is three months (October – December 2020). This program is in support of Interpreters in the State of Kansas who are required to have a Supervisory Plan in place and to be Registered with the Kansas Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (KCDHH) in either Tier A or Tier B. Deaf language mentors will be paid for their mentoring time (six sessions). Interpreters on a Supervisory Plan will be required to join KAI-RID at the individual membership fee level to participate, there will be no further cost to them. The total participant time over three months is nine hours (6 hours of mentor/mentee sessions; 3 hours of meeting time with the Professional Development Committee). Please complete the online application (KAI-RID.org) and email a letter of interest and a current resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a limited program and we will be recruiting for 3 Deaf Mentors and 3 Interpreters. Applications will be accepted until September 26th; however, please contact KAI regardless so that we can have your information for future program cohorts.
