TransLingua and Intercambio – a synergy built on communication across cultures.
TransLingua is pleased to announce its most recent partnership with Intercambio, another intercultural organization here in Boulder, Colorado. Founded in 2001, Intercambio is an independent nonprofit organization that has served over 10,000 people throughout Boulder County. It builds understanding, respect and friendship across the Hispanic and North American cultures through educational opportunities and intercultural events. We too believe in the power of language, and we look forward to helping Intercambio bridge communication gaps and to supporting their work with people from different cultures who make Boulder such an exiting and vibrant community.
Intercambio’s mission is to build understanding, respect and friendship across cultures through educational and intercultural opportunities. They offer:
- Volunteer-taught English classes for adult immigrants.
- Classes and workshops on life skills and citizenship.
- Cultural trainings and events for all community members.
Intercambio also celebrates intercultural interactions through monthly community events like potlucks, camping trips, sports days and their annual La Fiesta World Party.
On March 11, 2015, TransLingua is sponsoring Intercambio’s “Comedy for Cambio” event. This show features standup comedians from all over the country who joined together to help raise funds for Intercambio’s mission. Intercambio has hundreds of students on a waitlist for English classes and needs help raising money in order to recruite volunteers and to accommodate the students. TransLingua is proud to support Intercambio in this effort and to be among the sponsors of this fun event.
