Be a hero!

The work interpreters do is critically important.

The field of interpretation has never been more important. In a world where our precious natural resources are in constant peril, our socio-political landscape feels hopelessly divided, and the important lessons of our history are either incompletely understood or dangerously forgotten, interpreters share conservation messages and create connections with nature, build bridges of understanding between cultures and communities, and keep alive the history that informs so much about our modern-day trials and tribulations. Truly, the work interpreters do contributes to a cleaner, safer, kinder world.

You can help NAI support interpretation’s heroes.

NAI’s staff, Board, and a multitude of volunteer leaders are working tirelessly to support those working in the field of interpretation, but we can’t do it alone!

NAI Is Your Professional Association—And More

NAI is the super hero’s Hall of Justice for interpreters, where we connect with kindred spirits who share our values, our aspirations, and our experiences. Many of us have connected with mentors, role models, and teachers and found new inspiration throughout our careers through NAI. NAI provides a home where the spirit and practice of interpretation is nurtured and protected and where we can all reconnect with that spirit at any time. NAI’s goal is that our mission will live far into the future, helping interpreters save the day for
decades to come.

How will we use your contribution?

We’ve made great strides, but there’s so much more we can accomplish. Here are just a few of the projects that you can help us accomplish:

  • Scholarships for interpreters from underrepresented communities to attend the NAI Conference and other trainings
  • Grants for complimentary memberships for interpreters from underrepresented communities
  • Cultural competency training for NAI leaders and trainers
  • Certified Interpretive courses and other training for underrepresented communities

Super Hero Fund - Annual Fund 2023
The National Association for Interpretation has been helping interpreters fight the good fight by focusing on issues of Justice, Equity, Diversity, Accessibility, and Inclusion (JEDAI). Broadening the array of voices and perspectives that make up the critically important field of interpretation is so ingrained in our organizational values that it’s part of our strategic plan. It makes us stronger, and it reflects our members and their goals.
