Empowering Young Translators (EYT) is an evidenced-based learning resource drawing on an intervention (known as a pilot action) to support young people who translate and interpret for peers, family, and the local community. EYT focuses on exploring the social, cultural, emotional and wellbeing aspects of being a young translator and/or multilingual. Young translating can be both a challenging and rewarding activity and so these guidance materials are designed to enable you to open a space for considering the emotional engagement and wellbeing of the language broker through a series of activities. Throughout this handbook, the activities are framed to explore language brokering as a caring activity that young people do for others and raise awareness of the practice of young translating across schools, community groups or youth groups.

You will find this guidance useful if you encounter young translators and:

- Work in a school/college
- Work in the charity/NGO sector
- Engage in research with young people

This guidance was developed as part of the NEW ABC project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon2020 research and innovation programme. It draws together 13 partners from nine European countries with the aim of developing and implementing nine pilot actions. All NEW ABC pilot actions (activity- based interventions) include children and young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, but also teachers, families, communities and other stakeholders in education, as co-creators of innovation to empower them and make their voice heard.
