One of the beautiful things about a SEACA meeting is that you’ll often hear people speaking in several languages.
And yet, outside of our offices, many of our members feel embarrassed to speak. Embarrassed that their language skills aren’t that good, that their accent is a little too strong. But to us, our members represent a crucial link between our community and English speaking decision makers. Because so many of the adults in our community cannot speak English, the youth are literally the voice for our community.
Watch our students in action as they collect and translate community surveys in Chinese. We’ll be continuing to collect surveys in Khmer, Vietnamese, Chinese (Cantonese, Toisanese, and Chiu Chow) and Spanish in the coming months. And we could use help from any SEACA friends who speak any of those languages!
