Event information

Please join us on February 10 at 2 pm ET for our monthly GLOBE Mission Mosquito webinar. This month we're excited to share Bringing Down Language Access Barriers: First Steps

Remote working and learning present challenges to us all. As a GLOBE Master Trainer in Colombia, Juan Felipe Restrepo Mesa faced and overcame his share of challenges when working with a new group of educators from rural areas. Most of the training and educational materials from GLOBE Mission Mosquito are in English. Their solution? Secondary school students who speak English as a second language volunteered to translate the material into Spanish for classroom use.

There are lots of lessons to be learned from this project. Join Juan Felipe Restrepo Mesa and Kathy Velandia Ricardo as they share what they are learning every step of the way.
