Student Association for Interpreter Development

Mission Statement:

The Student Association for Interpreter Development (SAID), an educational student organization at Riverside City College (RCC), is dedicated to training and educating future American Sign Language interpreters through classroom instruction, hands-on experience, and collaboration with our local Deaf Community, our pool of local interpreting mentors, and our office staff. Upon completion of the RCC Interpreter Education Program, graduates will possess the necessary tools and skills to enter the Interpreting profession at an entry level.

The Student Association for Interpreter Development (SAID) was founded in 2008 as The Student Association of Interpreters for the Deaf by Danny Frank, Lisa Almilli, and Diana MacDougall.
