TL@W Holds December Training In-Person

February 11, 2022

Although TL@W is currently running virtual programming, in December, before the Omicron spike, our peer leaders held their first, in-person training since 2020.

The training was for the young workers who make up the Somerville-based Liaison Interpreter Program of Somerville (LIPS). Part of The Welcome Project, LIPS provides a unique paid opportunity for bilingual high school students to learn sought-after interpreter/translator skills and apply them at various events throughout the city. MassCOSH’s peer leaders worked with LIPS employees to help them better understand their rights as young workers and what barriers to those rights they may face on the job. TL@W also conducted interactive discussions to identify hazards at work and how to mitigate them to reduce injury.

The training was also a special one. This was Youth Programs Director Joe Tache’s first in-person training since joining MassCOSH in January of 2021. You killed it Joe!
