Found in Translation was founded in 2011 in order to create opportunity at the intersection of two social problems: health access disparities and economic inequality across race, gender, and ethnicity. Through education and supportive services, we connect top talent in low-income communities with well-paying jobs in one of the fastest-growing fields in the US.

- To unleash bilingual talent into the workforce to fight racial, ethnic, and linguistic disparities in health care
