Dear clients, linguists, and friends,
This Happy Holidays season we would like to thank all of you for your continued support, cooperation and friendship. Thanks to your contribution, TransLingua continues to bridge cultural gaps, bring people together, and facilitate international communication.
On this occasion, we would like to share one of the highlights of our year. This fall we learned about U Pass It On, a non-profit organization located in Hartsville, South Carolina. Based on the observation that many young people in the area have not received enough nurturing and education at home or at school, and as a result, do not have the necessary life and job skills to thrive, the founders of U Pass It On decided to fill this void.
Their mission is to help individuals from the Midlands of South Carolina and surrounding areas to acquire the necessary life and job skills so that they can have a better life. U Pass It On has developed a unique Job Development Program providing a variety of skill training services, including life skills development, employment readiness training, job skills training, job placement, entrepreneurial training, as well as mentoring and counseling. They actively work with government entities, business owners and manufacturers to prepare job seekers for employment or business ownership.
TransLingua has recently partnered with U Pass It On, donating its translation services to facilitate communication with the Spanish-speaking population in South Carolina in need of job training services. We are also happy to announce that we are making a holiday donation to U Pass It On in order to support its efforts to improve young people’s lives, no matter their background, culture or language.
In this spirit, all of us at TransLingua wish you a happy holiday season and a safe, healthy, and prosperous 2019!
The New York and Boulder staff of TransLingua
